Tax Highlights from the 2024 Federal Budget

This week Canadians received the official 2024 Federal Budget. Ottawa is expected to spend $52.9 billion more than planned over the next five years. Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland projects Ottawa will post a $40 billion deficit this fiscal year. The budget includes $8.5 billion in new spending for housing. Other major budget items include a $6 billion Canada Disability Benefit, a $1 billion national school food program and a $500-million fund for youth mental health. Freeland will hike capital gain taxes paid by the individuals and corporations to collect an estimated $19 billion in new revenue.

The cost to service the growing national debt has increased substantially — it's now about $2 billion more than it was projected to be just a few months ago. The government will spend more on servicing its debt than on health care this year.

From a tax perspective, the largest single change is the increase to the capital gains inclusion rate from one-half to two-thirds for corporations and trusts, and on the portion of capital gains realized by individuals in the year that exceeds $250,000.
