Government Announces Tuition Rebate
Providence students may qualify to receive portion of tuition rebate up front
On Nov. 30, the Manitoba government announced that, while they are still in school, students living and working in Manitoba qualify for a portion of the tuition fee income tax rebate.
The announcement stated, “Many have told us that more up-front help is needed; so beginning this year, students who live and work in Manitoba will qualify for a portion of the innovative tuition fee income tax rebate while they are still in school.”
This is an extension of the 2007 announcement where the government introduced a 60 per cent tax rebate on tuition for college and university students staying and working in Manitoba after graduation.
“This is an extension of the earlier program, in which students received a rebate on their tax return if they lived here after graduation,” says Gus Konkel, president of Providence College and Seminary. “My understanding is that this legislation applies to all institutions, including Providence, that qualify for student loans from the provincial government.”
All Providence students who would like to know if they qualify for this rebate should contact Providence’s Registrar’s office or the Canada Revenue Agency. Students receiving student loans may find this information valuable and should contact the National Student Loans offices for more information if they have not already received notification of these changes.
