Returning Hope®.

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. To date, we partnered with organizations across Canada to file 2,721 tax returns for those in need, and helped find over $1.8 million in missed credits and refunds.

H&R Block is committed to reducing poverty across the country. As Canada’s leading provider of tax services, we help people in need file their taxes accurately and on time by offering free tax filing in partnership with select organizations.

  • Nearly 10% of Canadians are living below the Low Income Cut Off.
  • Filing taxes is essential to access important government tax credits and programs: GST/HST credit, Employment Insurance, the Canada Child Benefit, disability credits, etc.
  • Challenges like not having a mailing address, government ID or access to a computer can prevent them from filing.
