Credits, Benefits and Incentives

For Businesses

The 2019 Ontario Budget announced the Ontario Job Creation Investment Incentive.

This incentive parallels the immediate write-off measures and the Accelerated Investment Incentive announced in the federal government's Fall Economic Statement 2018. Under these measures:

  • Manufacturing and processing machinery and equipment and specified clean energy equipment can be immediately written off, and
  • Most other capital investments are eligible for an Accelerated Investment Incentive that provides a depreciation rate of up to three times the normal rate in the first year the asset is put into use.
