Lisa C. Community, Daily Life, Newcomer Information

Welcome to Newcomer LearningHub! In this short video, let’s learn about a security online portal that helps you manage your tax affairs — My Account!
Topics covered in this video include:
  • What is My Account?
  • What are the advantages of using My Account?
  • Steps to follow when registering for My Account.

* Special note:

If you are a newcomer to Canada, and you have never filed personal tax returns with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), you need to file it once first before registering for My Account. The reason is that when you register, for verification purposes, CRA will ask you to type in an amount from one of your previous income tax and benefit returns.
