Liaison Officer service
Important noticeThe COVID-19 virus is affecting everyone, including small businesses. To ensure the safety of Canadians, we have temporarily suspended all in-person visits and seminars. However, liaison officers are available by phone to talk about current tax relief measures that may help you.
Please click the “request a Liaison Officer service” button below if you would like a phone call about COVID-19 tax relief measures.
We look forward to resuming in-person services and seminars when it is safe to do so.
