By using this application, you acknowledge and agree that the information provided by this application is provided to you as a resource for information only. While the Canada Revenue Agency will make every effort to keep this application up to date, you acknowledge and agree that the law can change very quickly, and accordingly the Canada Revenue Agency will not guarantee that any information on its mobile application is accurate and up to date.

The Canada Revenue Agency will not be liable to you for any loss or damages of any kind that are directly or indirectly related to the application. The Canada Revenue Agency does not guarantee or warrant that the application will be free from loss, corruption, attack, viruses, interference, hacking or other security intrusion, and the Canada Revenue Agency disclaims all liability relating thereto.

The Canada Revenue Agency has taken all reasonable steps to ensure the secure transmission of personal or confidential data to this mobile application. However, the Internet is a public network and there is the remote possibility of data security violations. In the event of such occurrences, the Canada Revenue Agency is not responsible for any damages you may experience as a result.

  • any matters or factors outside of its control, including the availability or unavailability of the Internet, or telecommunications or other infrastructure systems;
  • the availability or unavailability of the Internet, or telecommunications or other infrastructure systems due to system maintenance;
  • any inability to use MyBenefits CRA because of issues with the third party credential and login service providers (“the Sign-in partner services”), and any damage or harm that might be caused as a result of transactions carried out using those third party services;
  • the availability or unavailability of the services offered by this mobile application for any reason;
  • any illegal or fraudulent use of your user ID or password; or
  • the use of encryption technology (implemented in the secure portion of the mobile application) in a foreign country where such use is prohibited by the laws of that country.
