Private Member’s Bill

Thank you to all who supported Kevin’s first Private Members’ Bill. This page has now been archived.

Kevin’s first Private Member’s Bill, Bill C-241 focuses on a 100% GST Rebate for School Boards across Canada.

Canadians pay for their schools either through municipal or provincial taxes. These schools are then charged 100% GST on almost everything they purchase. They are subsequently reimbursed 68% of the GST after completing cumbersome and time-consuming paperwork, quarterly. Bill C-241 seeks to amend the Excise Tax Act to have the School Authorities reimbursed 100%.

The Bill can be found online here.
