The Multigenerational Home Renovation Tax Credit is a new refundable tax credit for the costs of certain renovation expenses to an eligible dwelling to establish a secondary unit. The secondary unit must allow a senior or an adult who is eligible for the disability tax credit to live with a qualifying relative. This amount may be claimed on your tax return (starting from the 2023 tax return).

You can claim up to $50,000 in qualifying expenditures for each qualifying renovation that is completed. The tax credit is 15% of your costs, up to a maximum of $7,500, for each claim you are eligible to make.
