Engage with the Government of Canada to follow through on their 2022 Federal Budget campaign commitment and implement a skilled trades workforce mobility tax deduction for out-of-pocket expenses when travelling for work.

The cost to travel for work (mileage, accommodations, food, etc.) are not tax deductible and isn’t always covered by your employer. When costs aren’t covered by your employer, skilled trades workers, like Local 793 members, should receive equal treatment under the Income Tax Act. The federal government has a responsibility to ensure a system of tax fairness is in place for all Canadians.


It’s easy and takes less than 2 minutes. A letter of support has already been drafted for you by Canada’s Building Trades Unions.
