    Short haul can claim more then one if they are gone long enough.Posted via Mobile Device

    If your shift is more than 12 hours working local you can claim two meals a day.

    In a recent Technical Interpretation, CRA noted that an employer-provided per diem meal allowance will not be taxable where the following conditions are met:

    • It must be a reasonable amount;
    • The allowance is received to cover expenses while traveling away from the metropolitan area or the municipality where the employer’s establishment is located, at which the employee normally worked or to which the employee normally reported;
    • The traveling is done to perform the duties of an office or employment.
