Primary Caregiver Tax Credit

Update: May 29, 2015 -

This credit recognizes the vital support caregivers provide to those needing care. Manitoba’s Primary Caregiver Tax Credit provides a refundable credit of up to $1,400) a year to people who act as primary caregivers for spouses, relatives, neighbours or friends who live at home in Manitoba. For this tax credit, people requiring care must be assessed at Level 2 or higher under the Manitoba Home Care Program guidelines. They are assessed based on the amount and type of care required for tasks like bathing, dressing, eating meals, mobility and receiving medical care. Level 1 requires minimal care in most cases and is not eligible.
