Volunteer Tax Credit
Share |

Canadians rely on over 140,000 volunteer firefighters. The CAFC has continued to ensure that Federal Government maintain the Volunteer Firefighter Tax Credit. 

This tax credit allows volunteer firefighters the ability to claim up to $3,000 annually by providing the following services:

  • responding to and being on call for firefighting and related emergency calls as a firefighter
  • attending meetings held by the fire department; and
  • participating in required training related to preventing or suppressing fire.

There was a review of this tax credit in 2017 and we were successful in helping to ensure that it was continued, but we must ensure this going forward. 

We have also asked that employment and insurance requirements be reviewed to ensure that they do not inadvertently penalize willing volunteer firefighters who assist their communities.
