How can I split my income with my children?

Splitting income with your children…

Children between the ages of 12 to 14 years are permitted to work under the Alberta Employment Standards Code, long as they have written consent from a parent or guardian. A safety checklist must also be completed by the parent or guardian.

There are certain regulations protecting the rights of working children.

Children must not work:

  • If they are under the age of 12
  • For more than two hours on a school day
  • For more than eight hours on a non-school day
  • Before 6:00 am or after 9:00 pm
