Video Game Labour Rebate

Game companies expanding their operations to Prince Edward Island may be eligible for our Video Game Labour Rebate (VGLR). This program provides game studios with a rebate against eligible production labour. Key features of the program include:

  • eligible labour applies to all staff working full time and living in Prince Edward Island, except for those who possess more than 5 % ownership of the company.
  • unlike most jurisdictions offering a labour based tax credit, companies may apply for quarterly payments of the rebate based on actual payroll records. This enables positive cash-flow for studios during the development cycle.
