For over 15 years the Council has coordinated free tax clinics in NDG for low-income individuals and families.
Once again, we will be offering the service in spring 2018.
In 2017, in collaboration with the NDG Tax Comity, the NDG Community Council had the opportunity to provide, for another year, free tax clinics in the 4 priority sectors; Fielding-Walkley, Benny Farm, Westhaven and St-Raymond. In total, about 430 tax returns were filed (215 federal and 215 provincial). Of course none of this would be possible without the help of our volunteers that out did themselves this year with their presence and commitment. The Council’s partners at the Food Depot, the Walkley Centre, the Westhaven Centre, the St-Raymond Center and the Loyola* Center provided their space, staff and internet connection for six “first come first serve” tax clinics. Flooding the day before the tax clinic at Loyola forced us to moved their tax clinic to the Walkley Center. The two center coordinators Bridget Glustein and Kadi Diop gave us one more illustration of community partnership and mutual aid in NDG by working together, accepting to host and coordinating at the last minute the clinic of the Loyola center at the Walkley center, the closest center in that neighborhood.
