It pays to stay and work in Manitoba

The tuition fee income tax rebate allows Manitobans to save up to $25,000 on their income tax.
The Manitoba Tuition Fee Income Tax Rebate helps post-secondary graduates pay for their education while they live and work in Manitoba, by providing a 60 per cent income tax rebate on their eligible tuition fees.
Live here. Save here.
Students who graduate with a degree, diploma or certificate from a post-secondary institution recognized by the Canada Revenue Agency on or after January 1, 2007 and now work and pay taxes in Manitoba can benefit from the Manitoba Tuition Fee Income Tax Rebate.
It doesn’t matter if their post-secondary training took place in Manitoba or elsewhere.
How it works
Graduates are entitled to receive a 60 per cent income tax rebate on their eligible tuition fees up to a maximum benefit of $25,000.
Here are some examples of what this rebate could mean to you:
Sample tuition fees                  60% Rebate
$40,000                                          $24,000
$25,000                                          $15,000
$5,000                                             $3,000
Provided they are living in Manitoba, post-secondary students can even apply for the rebate while they are going to school. They can claim a Rebate Advance in the form of a refundable 5 per cent tax credit on their tuition and ancillary fees.
