New Indigenous-Specific Tax Webpage from the CRA

Updated: Apr 21, 2021

Recently, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) launched a new webpage specifically about taxes and benefits for Indigenous peoples. On the new webpage, you will find information about getting benefits and credits, getting help to complete your tax return, and COVID-19 related benefit information.

Additionally, if you are a First Nations individual, you may be able to file your taxes using a simplified paper tax and benefit return form. While these forms are not available digitally, the CRA has begun distributing simplified forms to First Nations across the country. You can see if this option is available to you by contacting your band council office. For information on how to get the new simplified forms or to get help filling out the forms, you can call the CRA's British Columbia inquiries line at 1-855-214-7070.
