The Saitsa Tax Program is NOW CLOSED

Thanks to all the staff and volunteers that helped us complete 1445 Tax Returns in 2023!

If you have any questions or concerns about your tax return or your CRA account, please reach out to Canada Revenue Agency directly through Canada Revenue Agency – or call them at 1-800-959-8281.

At Saitsa, we know the burden that tax season can place on students’ shoulders, which is why we’ve partnered with the Canada Revenue Agency’s Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP).

The CVITP provides students and the immediate community with a FREE service to have their taxes done by dedicated student-volunteers who have received CRA training in this program.

Saitsa Tax Program will REOPEN on March 2024
