Tax Credits and Programs: Manitoba Interactive Digital Media Tax Credit

The Manitoba Interactive Digital Media Tax Credit (MIDMTC) is a refundable corporate income tax credit.  Companies can qualify to claim either a 40% or 35% tax credit on eligible project costs they incur and pay to develop an eligible interactive digital media product in Manitoba. The maximum tax credit on an eligible project is $500,000.

Projects must be approved by the Department of Growth Enterprise and Trade. A qualifying company must be a taxable Canadian corporation with a permanent establishment in Manitoba. 

This tax credit has been extended to December 31, 2019.

MIDMTC tax credits are processed as part of a qualifying company’s annual income tax return (T2), and any refunds are processed through the notice of assessment issued by the Canada Revenue Agency.

To apply to the MIDMTC program, companies must submit an application before work on an eligible project begins.

Enhancements to the MIDMTC were introduced in June 2016, and updates to the MIDMTC program materials below are currently being made. Companies are encouraged to contact the MIDMTC administrator listed below for additional information.

Further information on this tax credit can be found on Manitoba Finance's Corporate Tax Credits page.
