  • $750 tax credit for each new apprentice;
  • $1,500 tax credit for each new apprentice that is a veteran;
  • Tax credit takes effect for 2018 tax year;
  • Tax credit takes effect once apprentice has completed probationary period or after 6 months, whichever is earlier;
  • Tax credit can be claimed for up to five tax years for each new qualified apprentice;
  • Program guidelines will be available by January 1, 2018.
