Climate Action Incentive – residents of New Brunswick/Ontario/Manitoba/Saskatchewan

The Climate Action Incentive (CAI) is a new refundable tax credit to compensate residents from these provinces for the effects of the federal climate action plan, which now sets a price on carbon emissions. The credit itself is not income tested, which means that every resident of these provinces is eligible to claim it regardless of income. The amount of the credit will depend on your family situation.
