Volunteer Tax Preparation Clinics

Each year since 1969, hundreds of volunteer Chartered Professional Accountants (CPAs) prepare personal tax returns for thousands of low-income individuals in their communities, free of charge. To qualify for this tax return assistance, total household income must be below $40,000 with dependents or below $30,000 without dependents. The following are a list of places that have been currently made available on the Canada Revenue Agency's website. The list is continually added to so please check it weekly for updates:
