Tax & Benefits Clinic – Free Virtual Clinic for 2SLGBTQ+ Communities and Downtown East


The 519 Tax and Benefits Clinic is now open. Our service is designed to serve folks & families with earnings around CAD $40,000 who need help filing their income tax and benefit returns. CRA guidance for eligibility

When we opened registration on Monday, Feb 26, our waiting lists for immediate virtual services and our in-person clinics on March 2 & 9, were immediately filled. We will be opening more spots for all services on a rolling basis and will attend to you as soon as we can.

The 519 currently has a full list of clients seeking tax help, and to better serve our community, we will not be accepting new bookings for prior year returns or requests from Administrators or Case Workers linked to other Not-For-Profit Organizations until after April 30, 2024. We encourage Administrators and Caseworkers to consider establishing their own CVITP Clinic, and they may be eligible for government grants to support their clinic. More information can be found at the CVITP’s website.

We want to remind everyone that we have until 30 April 2024 to complete this process. While we sympathize with everyone’s desire to get tax filing over with, please be patient and do not send multiple messages by phone, text or email. The Clinic cannot tolerate rudeness, undue impatience or other frustrations inflicted upon our volunteers.
