Work Premium

Rate increases

The fixed rates used to calculate the maximum amount of the tax credits respecting the work premium for a person living alone and for a couple without children were increased by two percentage points, effective 2016. The rate increased from 7% to 9%, in the case of the work premium, and from 9% to 11%, in the case of the adapted work premium for households whose capacity for employment is severely limited.

For 2016, the maximum amount for the work premium increases from $564.48 to $725.76 for a person living alone and from $881.30 to $1,133.10 for a couple without children. The adapted work premium increases from $1,094.94 to $1,338.26 for a person living alone and from $1,641.96 to $2,006.84 for a couple without children.
