2019 Tax Receipts are now available

The YMCA of Niagara is pleased to make available electronic tax receipts for the 2019 tax year. As per Canada Revenue Agency regulations, official receipts are in an unalterable PDF format, and will be available no later than February 29th 2020.

Receipts will be available for:

  • Child Care

* Please be advised that the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit is no longer available. Effective as of 2017, the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit was phased out of the new Federal Budget. 2016 was the last year Canadians could claim federal tax write-offs for their children’s fitness activities under the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit.
