Income Tax Help

Annual Tax Clinic during March and April

For the last 13 years, Immigrant Services Guelph-Wellington (ISGW) has provided free tax preparation to low income newcomers and families through the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program. Volunteer tax preparers and staff were trained through Canada Revenue Agency and filed over 500 returns at the beginning of the pandemic. This year, a new partnership between ISGW and the West Willow Village will keep volunteers busy in the coming months helping low income families file their 2020 tax return. The West Willow Village is one of several community agencies that volunteer to coordinate the CRA Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) year-round. Email: for more information.

Year-round Appointments

We offer individual appointments to low-income, new immigrants who are filing income tax for the first time. To book an appointment, call 519-836-2222.

We run an Income Tax Workshop for newcomers (usually in February or March) where participants learn about:

  • the Canadian tax system
  • how to file an income tax return
  • taxpayer rights and responsibilities
  • when and what you need to file your return

This seminar is FREE and delivered in English in partnership with the Canada Revenue Agency.
