The B.C. caregiver tax credit is a new non-refundable tax credit which consolidates the B.C. in-home care of relative tax credit, and the B.C. credit for infirm dependents age 18 or older.

The B.C. caregiver credit is largely the same as the tax credits that it replaces. However, the B.C. caregiver credit will not be available to taxpayers who support a parent or grandparent over the age of 65 who has no physical or mental impairment.

The B.C. caregiver credit is similar to the federal caregiver credit introduced in 2017.
