Returning Hope® to Canadians.
For certain communities, filing a return on their own can be difficult. That's why H&R Block works with shelters and nonprofits to provide free, on-site tax preparation services as a way to return hope during tax season for those in need.
Who we’re helping.
Nearly 10% of Canadians are living below the Low Income Cut Off. Filing taxes is essential to access important government tax credits and programs, like: GST/HST credit, Employment Insurance, the Canada Child Benefit, disability credits, and more. We help them overcome challenges like not having a mailing address, government ID or access to a computer that can prevent them from filing.
How we’re making a difference.
To date, we’ve partnered with organizations across Canada to file 4,075 tax returns for those in need, and helped find over $2.5 million in missed credits and refunds.
