The proposed AITC will support local small businesses to create jobs and diversify the provincial economy. The AITC is a 3-year program that will offer a 30% tax credit to investors who provide venture capital to Alberta companies engaged in:

  • proprietary technology research
  • development or commercialization
  • interactive digital media development
  • video post-production
  • digital animation
  • tourism

The AITC will be retroactive. Investors who have made investments since the program was announced on April 14, 2016 will be able to apply for the tax credit if they meet the eligibility requirements. The registration process for the tax credit will be announced pending the passage of accompanying legislation this fall.
