Better Income Can Lead to Better Health:

You might think that because you receive social assistance or are a low-income earner there is no need to file your income tax return.  But if you don’t file a return, you might be missing out on extra income.  You may be able to receive some of the tax credits and benefits listed in the Get Your Benefits booklet.  Taxes should be filed by the end of April each year however you can file your taxes at any time throughout the year.

If you do not file your taxes you CANNOT get government benefits such as:

  • GST Credit
  • Working Income Tax Benefit
  • Canada Child Benefit
  • Canada Caregiver Credit
  • Personal Tax Credit
  • Education Property Tax Credit
  • Carbon Tax  Credit
  • Manitoba Seniors School Tax Rebate
  • Primary Caregiver Tax Credit

Free Tax Clinics
Free tax clinics are hosted by community groups through the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program.  You may be able to have your taxes done for free, if you have a modest income and a simple tax situation.  

To see if your situation fits, check with Canada Revenue Agency (click here) or your local community group. 


To learn more, call the CRA general enquiries line at 1-800-959-8281. During the tax season (February – April) call the CVITP program at 204-989-1912.

Thank you to all the volunteers who support Volunteer Income Tax programs!
