New to Canada? Learn about taxes and benefits

If you’re a newcomer to Canada, you have to do your taxes if you want to receive certain benefits and credits, if you want to get a refund, or if you think you may owe taxes.

Everything you need to know about doing your taxes is available at the “taxes” section on canada.ca. Here, you can find out about getting your social insurance number, completing a tax return, applying for benefits and credits, contacting the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) if you need help, and you can get international tax information.
