Children's Fitness Tax Credit

Red Cross Swim qualifies for the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit

Recently the Federal Government implemented a children’s fitness tax credit to encourage youth to partake in physical activity. This is a great fit with the Red Cross Swim program, which is designed to promote lifelong fitness by making activity challenging and fun. Contact your local pool to confirm that the Red Cross Swim lessons they offer are eligible for a fitness tax credit (eligibility is partly based on frequency and length of lessons, and this can vary from pool to pool). Enrolling your child in Red Cross Swim will provide them with the knowledge to stay safe and offer a lifetime of opportunity and enjoyment in aquatic activities.
