About our FREE tax clinics:
These clinics are hosted by community organizations across Canada through the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program where eligible people can get their tax returns done for free.
We encourage you to file online this year. If you choose to stay at home to practice social distancing and limit your potential exposure to COVID-19, you should consider filing your tax return online. If you have a modest income and a simple tax situation, The Strathcona Place Society, we may be able to complete and file your taxes virtually by video conference, curbside parking tax clinic, or through a document drop-off arrangement.
