Alberta introduces new agri-processing tax credit


As provinces and states across North America look to capitalize on the potential of the agri-processing industry, Alberta will build on the province’s competitive advantages by launching a new tax credit program in spring 2023.

The program will ensure Alberta maintains a competitive edge over other jurisdictions and is able to maximize the number of opportunities that help grow the economy and create jobs.

Budget 2023 will introduce the Alberta Agri-Processing Investment Tax Credit to provide a 12 per cent non-refundable tax credit to support this growth and attract investments into Alberta’s agri-processing industry.

The incentive program is available to corporations making a capital investment of $10 million or more to build or expand agri-processing facilities in Alberta. Capital investments made on or after February 7, 2023, may be considered in the calculation of a company’s total tax credit.

The Agri-processing Investment Tax Credit will be ready to accept applications in Spring 2023.
