The Canadian Federal government just introduced the Educator School Supply Tax Credit. If you qualify, you can claim a 15% refundable tax credit on up to $1000 of material you purchased during the year! This not only applies to elementary and high school teachers, but also early childhood educators! You just need to have a certificate or diploma in early childhood education that is recognized by the province or territory you work in!
A few examples of supplies that are eligible are paper, flash cards, paint, crayons, educational software, books, games, puzzles and more!
