Can I claim my trip as tax-deductible? The duration of your trip affects whether or not your trip is tax-receiptable. Tax-receipt eligibility means that more than 50% of your trip has to be for volunteer/charitable-related purposes. See video below to learn about how your Global Village trip can be eligible for tax-deductibility or tax-receipting.

Canadians who incur airfare and travel expenses qualify for charitable tax receipts when the primary purpose of the participant’s trip was to voluntarily carry out the mission and work of Habitat for Humanity Canada.


This page is dedicated to explaining how to make sure your trip is tax receiptable and how to follow Habitat Canada guidelines.
