Saskatchewan's Bill 133, which extends the Saskatchewan Manufacturing and Processing Exporter Tax Incentive by one year, received Royal Assent on May 17, 2023. Specifically, the bill extends the incentive to December 31, 2023 (from December 31, 2022), as previously announced in the province’s 2023 budget. This incentive provides non-refundable tax credits to eligible corporations who hire additional manufacturing and processing-related full-time employees beyond the number who were employed in 2014.

The corporate income tax measure to extend the Saskatchewan Manufacturing and Processing Exporter Tax Incentive in Bill 133 is considered enacted for U.S. GAAP purposes as of May 17, 2023 (the date the bill received Royal Assent). The measure was considered substantively enacted for IFRS and Accounting Standards for Private Enterprise (ASPE) purposes on April 5, 2023, the date the bill received first reading (as Saskatchewan has a majority government).
