Register for My Account – Canada Revenue Agency

Lisa C. COVID-19, Newcomer Information

My Account is a secure portal that lets you view your personal income tax and benefit information and manage your tax affairs online.

To register for My Account, go to canada.ca/my-cra-account and select “CRA register.”

* Note that before you can use this option to register, you must have filed your income tax and benefit return for the current tax year or the previous one.

You will need to provide:

  • your social insurance number (SIN)
  • your date of birth
  • your current postal or zip code
  • an amount you entered on your income tax and benefit return (the amount requested changes, and it could be from the current tax year or the previous one)

If you previously registered for My Account to apply for COVID-19 benefits, you are encouraged to enter the security code you received in the mail to access all of My Account’s features.

There are two other ways to access My Account.

Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has a short video explaining the My Account registration process:
