on behalf of the Alberta provincial government.


Alberta family employment
tax credit (AFETC)

The AFETC is a non-taxable amount paid to families with working income that have children under 18 years of age.

For July 2014 to June 2015, you may be entitled to receive:

  • $736 ($61.33 per month) for the first child;
  • $669 ($55.75 per month) for the second child;
  • $401 ($33.41 per month) for the third child; and
  • $134 ($11.16 per month) for the fourth child.

The maximum you can get is the lesser of $1,940 and 8% of your family's working income that is more than $2,760.

The credit is reduced by 4% of the amount of the adjusted family net income that is more than $35,916. Payments are made in July 2014 and January 2015. Payments are made separately from the CCTB payments.

This program is fully funded by the Alberta provincial government.
