Personal Income Taxes

The Canada Revenue Agency collects and administers federal individual income taxes as well as most provinces' individual income taxes, including Manitoba.


Residents of Canada are required to pay Canadian income taxes on their world income. Generally speaking, residents live primarily in Canada, or maintain a home or family in Canada. Other factors which Canada Revenue Agency considers to determine residency are the maintenance of personal property and social ties in Canada. Sojourners for periods totaling 183 days or more in a year may be deemed to be a resident of Canada and subject to Canadian income taxes.

For more information about residency for Canadian income tax purposes, contact the International Taxation Office, 2204 Walkley Road, Ottawa, Ontario, K1A 1A8 or call 1-800-267-5177 or 1-613-952-3741.

Manitoba Budget 2016 announced the indexing of the Basic Personal Amount (BPA) and personal income tax brackets (Brackets) beginning in the 2017 tax year set by the Manitoba Consumer Price Index (CPI). The index rate is 1.2% for 2018 and 2.6% for 2019.

The CPI that determines the provincial index rate is published by Statistics Canada for the twelve month period from October to September of the year prior to the relevant tax year. This twelve-month calculation period is consistent with the formula used federally and by other provinces that index.  The formula is entrenched in The Income Tax Act (Manitoba).
