Quebec's new Liberal government announces 20 per cent tax credit for renovations
The temporary tax credit for projects between $3,000 and $10,000 will create $3-billion in home renovations work in Quebec. So the politicians say. We can trust them on that, right?

Au revoir Parti Quebecois and their English-language-loathing policies.
And hello to Quebec’s new Liberal government and – this is not bad news either – their attempt to stimulate home renovations in the province.
The Quebec government has announced a temporary tax credit for homeowners, who can claim up to 20 per on renovations worth between $3,000 and $10,000. The work must be under contract by July 1, 2015 and completed by a qualified contractor by December 31, 2015.
The politicians (they can be trusted, right?) claim this will create an extra $3-billion in renovation work in Quebec, with the average project costing $13,500 per household.

And here’s a story about it from the Montreal Gazette.
