Request a Tax Clinic

The CPA Alberta Tax Clinic Program runs from early March to mid-April. CPA Alberta will coordinate the recruitment and assignment of volunteers for your organization based on the estimated number of returns stated on the application form. Volunteers may have varying backgrounds and levels of experience in preparing returns, but all will have the knowledge and skills required to assist clients.

Registrations will be accepted next year starting October 2019
On behalf of the Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers and our clients, we thank you! This year was our biggest tax clinic in the last four years; you helped us complete and filed a total of 411 tax files in our three locations. A big thank you to Juanita for all the work she did with recruitment. Again, a heartfelt thank you from our agency, settlement and language teams, and our clients.
