Line 22400 – Exploration and development expenses

Claim this amount if you invested in petroleum, natural gas, mining or certain clean energy generation and energy conservation ventures in 2023. However, if your investment constitutes the operating of a business, as opposed to a passive investment, claim this amount in the calculation of your net self-employment income on line 13500 of your return. For more information, see Lines 13499 to 14300.

If you have any questions about these expenses, contact the CRA's business enquiries line.

If you have a tax shelter, see Tax shelters.
