Key Policy Recommendations
At a glance: Increase competitiveness, level the playing field, secure domestic manufacturing
For the 2023 Budget, Canada Cleantech Alliance proposes the following:
1. An expansion of the 30% Investment Tax Credit (ITC)
2. A Manufacturing Investment Tax Credit (MITC) modelled on the U.S. 45X MPTC and 48C ITC
Why is this important?
Both mechanisms combined fill an important policy gap which can prevent Canada’s world-leading cleantech companies from moving their businesses and manufacturing activities to the U.S.
- Cleantech tax incentives are crucial for clean growth as they increase the flow of private capital into cleantech and support decarbonization efforts without increasing costs for industry.
- The two suggested tax incentives will help Canada keep pace with other jurisdictions, especially the U.S., and keep our cleantech manufacturers in the country.
- They will benefit both emerging and established clean technologies and strengthen Canada’s cleantech sector – a strategic and fast-growing global sector.
