New Conservative government to make it easier for volunteers to qualify for tax credits recognizing their service

A new Conservative government will allow more search and rescue volunteers and volunteer firefighters to qualify for tax savings, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer announced today.

“Communities across Canada rely on volunteers for essential services like fire protection and search and rescue,” Scheer said. “These are people of courage, character, and strength who step up when their neighbours need it most, often at significant personal expense. A new Conservative government will recognize this service and sacrifice by making it easier for them to qualify for tax savings so they can get ahead.”
