(Workforce Skills Development
and Recognition Act)

The Workforce Skills Development and Recognition Act was put into place in 1998 across Quebec. This Law requires organizations with a total payroll of $1,000,000 or more to invest at least 1% of their payroll into training initiatives, in addition to conserving the supporting documentation. The Law outlines the types of admissible trainings, as well as the documentation that must be developed, conserved, and submitted to Revenue Quebec. It is important to note that as of the 2015 civil year, the threshold has been increased to $2,000,000.

If a Company is unable to cover the total amount required, or fails to properly document its training expenses, it must remit the difference to the government. Revenue Quebec has the authority to review the training expenditures for the four previous years.

The documents which must be conserved include, but are not limited to, the training plans, the internal training committee’s meeting minutes, the training certificates, attendance sheets, proof of payments, pay registers, and other supporting documentation.
