Peter Stoffer NDP Sackville—Eastern Shore, NS

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-233, an act to amend the Income Tax Act (community service group membership dues).

Mr. Speaker, this is the reintroduction of a bill that has great support among volunteer groups throughout the country.

We all know that this country could not operate without the valued effort of those millions of volunteers. The bill is asking that any volunteer of a registered organization who donates 250 hours of his or her time per year be able to claim a $1,000 one-time income tax deduction. This would benefit all the volunteers in this country tremendously.
