The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is still closely monitoring the situation around the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the guidance provided by the Public Health Agency of Canada. Our top priority is the health and safety of Canadians, our partner organizations, and our employees.
As announced by the Prime Minister on March 18, 2020, the tax filing season will be extended from April 30 to June 1, 2020. We hope this will give community members and organizations the opportunity to file their income tax returns before the June 1 deadline.
We will provide updates on when we’re able to resume normal outreach activities.
