Making Adoption More Affordable

There is no higher calling than raising a child – and no greater reward. 

A re-elected Conservative government will help Canadian parents who adopt children by significantly increasing the value of the Adoption Expense Tax Credit, raising the maximum amount to $20,000 and making it fully refundable. 

Every year, thousands of Canadian families are transformed as they bring adopted children into their hearts and lives. We recognize that adoption costs can be high and, in some cases, prohibitive for families. That’s why we will increase the support available to these caring Canadians.

This tax relief is part of our low-tax plan for Canadian families and builds on our proven record of helping make life more affordable for Canadian families through benefits like the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit, the Family Tax Cut and Tax-Free Savings Accounts.
