Income Tax Program at the QUIC
QUIC provides information and help to students who wish to submit a Canadian Income Tax return. The International Student Advisor and peer volunteers have prepared workshops and income tax clinics for international students seeking help in completing income tax forms using freely-available UFile online tools.
To participate in the UFile Workshop at the QUIC you must:
- Register for your UFile at https://www.ufile.ca/ prior to coming to a workshop
- Bring your own computer compatible with the UFile’s online tool
- Have your T2202 (from SOLUS), your T5, T4/T4A if applicable
- Record of rent you paid in 2019 (and previous years, if applicable)
- Your Social Insurance Number (SIN) or Individual Tax Number (ITN) if applicable
The workshops will walk participants through the 2019 version of the software but those who have other years of tax forms to complete are welcome. Some participants will be able to use the software to submit their tax forms electronically, while others will only be able to use the software to complete their forms for printing and submission by mail.
Students may choose a workshop on one of the following dates:
Monday, March 2 5:30pm – 7:00pm

If you don’t have a Social Insurance Number (SIN), you need to apply for an Individual Tax Number (ITN) before using the UFile. For information on how to apply for the ITN, check the CRA website.
Once you receive your ITN, you will use it as a SIN when using the UFile for your tax return.
Spouses / partners of international students and international staff are welcome to participate in these workshops.
In addition to workshops, volunteers will be available to assist with income tax returns in individual appointments.
