Bill C-241 | March 23, 2022

On February 8, 2022, it was my honour to rise in the House to introduce legislation to amend the Income Tax Act to allow tradespersons to claim travel expenses for work at least 120 kilometers from their residence in the same manner that self-employed individuals can claim.

Today, my Bill goes for the second reading.
This is a matter of basic fairness to me. I made a commitment to tradespeople and their representatives in my riding to bring this forward if re-elected.

“Mr. Speaker, by 2025, Canada will need an additional 350,000 tradespeople to fill the void. I look forward to working with parties in this place to pass this important legislation and give the necessary support for our trades across the country when they travel for work.”
