The Government of Canada has a database of important questions and answers pertaining to the credit, including:
“The budget proposes a new refundable tax credit called the Canada training credit available for eligible tuition and other fees paid for courses taken in 2020 and subsequent taxation years. The credit will be the lesser of the individual’s Canada training credit limit for the taxation year, and half of the eligible tuition and fees paid to an eligible educational institution in respect of the year.” – canada.ca
“Starting in 2019, an eligible individual will be able to accumulate $250 in each year (provided the individual satisfies all the conditions stated in Q10), up to a maximum of $5,000 in a lifetime. The Canada training credit limit for a year is equal to their Canada training credit limit for the previous year minus any Canada training credit claimed in the previous year plus the annual accumulation of $250 in the previous year.” – canada.ca
