Plan a Brantford staycation this year and get back up to 20% of your eligible 2022 Ontario accommodation expenses with the Ontario Staycation Tax Credit. 

Ontario Staycation Tax Credit

The temporary Ontario Staycation Tax Credit for 2022 aims to encourage Ontario families to explore the province, while helping the tourism and hospitality sectors recover from the financial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Ontario residents can claim 20% of their eligible 2022 accommodation expenses, for example, for a stay at a hotel, cottage or campground, when filing their personal Income Tax and Benefit Return for 2022.

You can claim eligible expenses of up to $1,000 as an individual, or $2,000 if you have a spouse, common-law partner or eligible children, to get back up to $200 as an individual or $400 as a family.
