Essex MP’s Bill to Allow Tradespeople to Claim Travel Expenses to Receive Third Reading in February | Jan 27, 2023

Bill C-241, put forward by Chris Lewis, would amend the Income Tax Act to allow tradespeople to deduct from their income amounts expended for travelling where they were employed in a construction activity at a job site that is located at least 120 km away from their ordinary place of residence.

Lewis’s bill passed second reading in the HOC back in June, with the support of the NDP, Green Party, and Bloc Québécois. All but one Liberal member voted against it.

Bill C-241 will come up for a third reading in the House of Commons mid-February.
