Only current year tuition can be transferred to a parent. Once the tuition is carried forward, it can no longer be transferred. If you transferred the max last year, you had the max benefit. The remainder is hers to use when she has income to claim it against.

Based on this assessment, you have unused federal and Ontario tuition and education amounts of $2,058 and $774. You can carry forward these amounts to later years. Does this mean I can't claim this anymore on my taxes as her parent
