Alberta PC leadership candidate promises $25,000 tuition tax credit

August 26, 2011

Rick Orman, a candidate for the leadership of Alberta's PC party, pledges that under his government, Alberta students graduating from a provincial PSE institution would be eligible for a maximum $25,000 tax credit on their tuition costs. Under the proposal, graduates would have to live in the province for 5 years following graduation to claim the full tax credit. Orman's policy is similar to that introduced by fellow leadership candidate Ted Morton, under whose proposal PSE students who stay in Alberta 7 years after graduating can receive up to $20,000 in tax credits.
