Having your taxes up to date is incredibly important in order to access a host of benefits and governmental helps. This is especially true for Seniors and low-income people and families.
Providing help on this front has proven quite challenging and many faith-based institutions have had to cancel their free tax clinics this year, but some have found a way to carry this work forward navigating the Covid-19 restrictions.
During the Covid-19 crisis, Interfaith Housing Initiative has been working with a few partners who work to serve immigrants in drawing together a strong list of places you can go for help here in the Edmonton area. You can read the list we’ve put together here:
We found a pretty strong group of organizations who have found a way, and provide help to all kinds of folks; including newcomer families, peoples with disabilities, seniors, homeless neighbours. Please share this list with anyone looking for this help.
We update this list weekly to keep it current!
