Parents' costs for booking children’s recreational programs and passes (including arts and culture programs) may be submitted for tax credits from the Government of Canada. Please view the Children’s Tax Credits document for more information. The authority to determine whether any claim for a credit will be approved rests with the Canada Revenue Agency.
