The Climate Action Incentive (CAI) is a payment introduced in 2018 by the Government of Canada to offset the impact of carbon pollution tax increases on Canadians. We’ve gathered up-to-date information on CAI eligibility and payment amounts to help you complete your 2020 tax return.
For 2020 tax returns filed in 2021 or later, the CAI is available to residents of Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. Other provinces are part of the federal carbon pollution pricing system and are therefore not eligible to receive this payment. New Brunswick residents are no longer entitled to the CAI.
