Free Tax Clinics

November 23, 2022

Interested in helping Guelphites file their taxes?

Whether it’s the Canada Child Benefit, the GST/HST credit, or the Climate Action Incentive, benefits and credits are central to helping Canadians with the rising cost of living.

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is committed to making it easier for Canadians, especially for those from at-risk populations, to access these important benefits and credits. Free tax clinics hosted through the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) and Income Tax Assistance Volunteer Program (ITAVP) in Quebec are at the heart of these efforts. So far in 2022, over 3,300 community partners and 14,500 volunteers have helped over 630,000 people access benefits and credits by completing their income tax and benefit returns.

To encourage other community organizations to participate in our free tax clinic programs and reach even more Canadians, we’re enhancing the funding available through our grant for hosting free tax clinics, also known as the CVITP Grant.
