COVID-19: Free virtual tax clinics

We know how important free tax clinics are to Canadians. This is why community organizations will be hosting free virtual tax clinics in the coming weeks. Volunteers may be able to do taxes for free, by videoconference or phone, through the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) and the Income Tax Assistance – Volunteer Program in Quebec.

These virtual clinics will be held on an interim basis to help complete tax returns while still following physical distancing guidelines. Due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, many community organizations had to close, postpone, or scale back their in-person free tax clinics.

If you have a modest income and a simple tax situation, trained volunteers may be able to do your taxes for free. See how you can:

We’re working with our partner organizations to make sure these virtual clinics are safe and secure and that your private information is protected.

The clinic directory will be updated in the coming days and weeks as organizations register to host virtual tax clinics.

Volunteers can do taxes for free, by videoconference or phone. Your organization should have volunteers who have some experience with the CVITP and who have a basic understanding of income tax. If your organization is interested in participating:
