Volunteers from community organizations across Canada help eligible people complete and file their taxes for free through the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)’s CVITP or through Revenu Quebec’s Income Tax Assistance – Volunteer Program (ITAVP). The CVITP Grant helps off-set costs incurred by community organizations that host free tax clinics and provides funding for the total number of income tax returns filed.
