Employment Related Training Tax Information:

If the program is employment related training, then the university must receive a letter from the employer confirming that the program constitutes such training within the meaning of Canada Revenue Agency Interpretation Bulletin IT-470R. Generally, the Bulletin states that where the training is taken for the benefit of the employer, there is no taxable benefit to the employee.

If the tuition fee is paid by the company, it is the company's responsibility to determine whether the fees paid on behalf of the individual is a taxable benefit and should or should not be included on his/her T4 slip.

To confirm employment related training, please download the following template, print on company letterhead and email to our admissions team at

Non-Employment Related Training Tax Information:

A discount is a taxable benefit to the individual participant and should be included on the individual's tax return if the program is non-employment related training.

The university has a legal obligation to report the discount amount (considered a bursary) to Revenue Canada by issuing a T4A slip to the individual at the end of the year.

Tax receipts, referred to as Education Amount Certificate (T2202A) will be issued for the full amount of the tuition fee less the cost of meals, study materials and accommodation, whichever is applicable.

The individual is responsible to report the discount (bursary) to Revenue Canada and claim the education credit (if applicable). Refer to Revenue Canada tax guide for eligibility.

Tax receipts are available from the Finance Department. Please contact


Where program applicants are eligible for more than one fee reduction, for example an alumni discount and a partnership organization discount, only one discount will be applied towards the tuition fee. It is the policy of Rotman Executive Programs to honour the greater of the two discounts. Discounts are not redeemable for cash.
