International waivers and notifications for certificates of compliance: CRA and COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are continuing to review international waivers (Regulation 102, Regulation 105, and RC473 Non-Resident Employer Certification), and requests for a certificate of compliance under section 116 (T2062 series of forms). However, processing times may be longer than usual.

Requests for Individual Tax Numbers (ITNs)

At this time, we cannot process applications for ITNs alongside your waiver application or request for certificate of compliance. Please apply for the ITN separately by completing Form T1261, Application for a Canada Revenue Agency Individual Tax Number (ITN) for Non-Residents and following the mailing instructions on the form. Please ensure to check the box indicating the reason you are submitting the request for an ITN as that will expedite the process.

If you have a new request or submission

Due to restrictions on mail operations, and until operations resume in full, we may not be able to access any documents sent by mail or fax after March 12, 2020. You can still submit your request and information by mail or fax, but there may be delays in processing. If your situation is, or becomes, urgent, please call 1-800-959-8281 or follow the instructions below to contact us by email or submit your documents electronically.
