March – April 2020
To minimize the spread of COVID-19 and in support of the B.C. Medical Health Officer’s recommendation for social distancing, this community event is now cancelled.
CPABC Vancouver Chapter Outreach Committee and Gordon Neighbourhood House invites you to participate in the inaugural Volunteer Tax Clinic event from March through to April 2020. The program’s success depends on volunteers, like you, who generously give your time and expertise to assist low income individuals in the community with their tax returns.

The shifts will run on Saturday’s from 10 am to 2 pm and volunteers are encouraged to sign up for two or more shifts. Please note that volunteers will need to bring their own laptops but internet service will be provided.
