Community Income Tax Clinic


Our North Shore Community Income Tax Clinic assists eligible lower income individuals to complete and file their income tax return.

Taxes are prepared by qualified volunteers registered with the Canada Revenue Agency. This program is a proven poverty reduction initiative as filing a tax return is often required to receive other government benefits and your tax refund if you are eligible.

The North Shore Community Income Tax Clinic is for North Shore residents only.
