30% tax credits eligibility - all you need to know

Please note! Taxable income will not be a criterion for access to tax credits.

The maximum taxable income ($112,655 in 2022) required to qualify for the 30%[1] tax credits specific to labour-sponsored funds has been postponed for 3 years. This decision was taken by the Quebec government to enable labour-sponsored funds to raise more capital and increase their investments, particularly in the housing sector.

Since its inception, the Fonds de solidarité FTQ has regularly exchanged views with governments with the aim of implementing innovative, solidarity-based solutions to today's socio-economic challenges. This decision is the result of productive and ongoing discussions with public decision-makers.

Remaining eligibility requirements

The other usual criteria are still required to qualify for labour-sponsored funds tax credits.

The tax credits amount to 30%, namely 15% at the Quebec level and 15% at the federal level, and are limited to $1,500 per fiscal year, which represents a $5,000 purchase of shares of the Fonds de solidarité FTQ. On March 1, 2024, The Government of Québec announced in Information Bulletin 2024-3 that tax legislation would be amended to postpone by three years the rule providing that the tax credit would be available only to individuals whose taxable income for a given taxation year was below the highest tax rate. Please note that this postponement may be subject to legislative changes.
