For residents in north Calgary this is good news.

I’ve heard from many individuals in our community how much they appreciated the Home Renovation Tax Credit when it was first introduced and how important it was to making improvements to their homes affordable.

As the Prime Minister also stated today, the Home Renovation Tax Credit would also support local jobs here in Calgary and ensure residents of Edgemont, Hamptons, Hidden Valley, Panorama, Beddington, Huntington Hills, Thorncliffe, Sandstone, Macewan, Country Hills and North Haven benefit from professional contractors.

This is yet another example of our Party’s proven record of helping Canadians in ways that tangibly improve their lives.

The Home Renovation Tax Credit, originally established by the our Government in 2009 as a temporary measure, was a resounding success. About one in every three households took advantage of this program, saving more than three million Canadians, on average, more than $700 each.  It also pumped $4.3 billion into Canada’s economy, creating and supporting well-paying jobs. A re-elected Conservative Government will make this tax credit permanent, available each year for substantial home renovation expenses between $1,000 and $5,000.


This is an issue I have heard about from the voters of north Calgary and if re-elected I will continue to work hard on your behalf to keep more of your money in your pockets.
