About the CPA Alberta Tax Clinic Program
The Tax Clinic program was established in 1973. At that time, tax clinics were introduced as a public service with three pilot tax clinics being held. From mid-March to mid-April, volunteers visit senior citizen homes and social agencies in major centers across Alberta. Since 1973, the program has expanded to include over 100 organizations and more than 500 volunteers annually, however, the focus remains the same—a community service program designed to assist the elderly, disabled, unemployed, and new Canadian citizens that are financially disadvantaged complete their annual personal tax returns.
For the 2019 tax year, CPA Alberta redesigned the Tax Clinic Program due to COVID-19. The virtual program connected over 150 volunteers and completed over 1,800 tax returns.
