A Conservative Federal Government will make Maternity Benefits Tax-Free

August 26, 2019
Having a child is an exciting milestone in any person's life, but it comes with added costs and pressures.

A conservative government will remove federal income tax from Employment Insurance (EI) maternity and EI paternal benefits by providing a non-refundable tax credit of 15 percent for any income earned under these two programs.

The benefit to a Canadian whose salary is $50,000 would be about $4,000.

All Canadian families will be eligible for this new benefit.
