Position Description

Family Service Thames Valley, in collaboration with the CRA is recruiting volunteers from London and surrounding areas to help out it the 2019 tax season. The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) offers free services to low-income individuals across Canada. You can make a difference in the lives of seniors, newcomers, students and other marginalized communities, while gaining valuable experience and making great friends along the way. 
You can volunteer as often as you want-- some volunteers choose to work as little as 3 hours/ week during tax season (March and April). Clinics operate all across the city, allowing you to choose a location, and volunteer time, that works best for you.
While some experience doing tax returns is helpful, it is by no means required. You will be given training around your volunteer responsibilities, the Canadian tax system, and how to use the tax software. All taxes filed at CVITP clinics are considered simple, and each location has their own coordinator there to answer any questions you might have. 
Join the thousands of volunteers across Canada who are making a difference in their communities!
