Climate Action Incentive Payment

Also known as “Carbon Tax” refunds, the CAIP is a tax-free quarterly payment available to all residents in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba & Ontario. Quarterly payments are in April, July, October, and January each year which means you must file your personal tax returns by around mid-March to receive that April payment. You should receive a double payment in July if your taxes are filed on time by the end of April.
