Share your thoughts: Supporting newcomers to Canada filing their income tax and benefit return

The CRA's People First philosophy guides us to meet client needs and expectations by putting people at the centre of everything we do. Our philosophy reinforces the importance of engaging people to understand their experiences, the issues that they face, and how we can improve our services to align with their needs.

The CRA will undertake consultations to collect input from service provider organizations and community organizations working with newcomers who have arrived in Canada within the past five years. Our goal is to better understand how to support newcomers and the organizations that assist them in filing an income tax and benefit return.
