Filing taxes can be intimidating. Whether you are new to Canada and looking for an overview of the Canadian tax system, or you are looking for advice as to how to better file your taxes as a postdoc, this one-hour workshop with members of the Canada Revenue Agency’s BC Outreach team will provide a general introduction to some of the benefits and credits to which you may be entitled as you prepare to file your tax return. Some of these benefits and credits may include: 

  • The Canada child benefit;
  • Goods and services tax/Harmonized Sales Tax credit; and/or
  • Disability tax credit.

The CRA Outreach team will also be offering this info session on Wednesday, March 22, 2023 from 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM and Tuesday, April 11, 2023 from 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM.
