Tax Free Therapy
UPDATE: As of November 2023
Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland introduced legislation on November 29, 2023 in the House of Commons which included the GST/HST exemption.
Canadians should not have to pay taxes on mental health care. Counselling/psychotherapy services should be GST/HST exempt. CAMFT is part of a coalition of associations advocating to end the tax on mental health care. Please visit www.taxfreetherapy.ca to learn about the campaign and to lend your support. On this website, you will find an explanation of the issue, a parliamentary petition you can sign, and a letter you can send to your MP and to the Minister of Finance. The letter will require only 30 seconds of your time to complete.
