From the towering peaks of the Arctic Cordillera mountain range to the vast expanse of ice that covers nearly half of the territory during winter months, Nunavut offers a unique and breathtaking landscape unlike any other. Despite its isolation from the rest of Canada, this remote region has managed to maintain a vibrant community of Indigenous peoples who have called this place home for thousands of years.
As Nunavut continues to evolve and grow, one aspect of life here remains constant: the need to pay income taxes just like every other Canadian citizen. So how does your net income work in Nunavut? Let's take a look.

When it comes to calculating your income tax, you may wonder what tax deductions and tax credits are and how they affect your tax bill. In Canada, tax deductions are not very common and are mostly limited to specific situations. Instead, Canada often uses tax credits to reduce your income tax liability. Tax credits are items that you can subtract from your income tax after you have calculated it based on your taxable income.
However, there are some important things to know about tax credits here.
One, most of them are non-refundable. If your tax credits are more than your tax, you will not get a refund of the excess amount.
Two, most of them are expressed in dollar "amounts" that are not directly subtracted from your tax. Rather, they are multiplied by the lowest tax rate and then subtracted from your income tax.
One of the most common and universal tax credits is the basic personal amount. This is an amount that every resident of Nunavut can claim. For 2022, the basic personal amount in Nunavut is $16,862.
Residents in Nunavut are also eligible for an easy to access cost of living tax credit which varies depending on your income while maxing out at $1,500 to help offset the high cost of living in Nunavut.
Your income will also see federal income tax as well. We have an entire section dedicated to this below.
Besides paying income tax, you will also pay taxes for social security. In the majority of Canada, social security primarily encompasses the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Employment Insurance (EI). The rates for CPP and EI contributions stand at 5.7% and 1.58%, respectively. It is important to be aware that there are maximum limits on the income subject to these contributions.
Furthermore, in order to alleviate the impact of social security contributions, there are corresponding tax credits available, applicable up to certain thresholds. These credits can be utilized at both the territorial and federal levels, offering some relief from the burden of these contributions.
