Tax Clinic Postponed

By Tax Clinic No Comments

Silent Voice is postponing all three weeks of our Free Income Tax Clinic for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community until further notice.  That means all tax clinic appointments between March 24 to April 9th have been cancelled.  We are committed to ensuring the safety of all clients, accountants, volunteers and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.  We understand that your tax returns are important and we are also committed to making sure you will receive this critical service when it is safe to do so.    We will be contacting those who have made an appointment personally once we set up a new date for you to file your 2019 taxes.   

We will also connect with CRA for more information and share updates with you.

Thank you for your understanding and patience. Please stay safe during this difficult time.  Toronto Public Health recommends staying at home whenever possible.

Hello,

We are the Canadian Deaf Youth Leadership Camp (CDYLC) 2020 team, with a focus on outreach and registration. We are seeking your help in finding Canadian Deaf youth to participate in the CDYLC 2020 camp.

The camp is run by Deaf Youth Canada (DYC), and is to be held in Surrey, British Columbia from July 17 to 24, 2020. Our mission is to give Canadian Deaf Youth between the ages of 18 to 30 the ability to become leaders that strengthen and preserve our Deaf community, Deaf culture, and sign languages in Canada. The camp offers workshops, team-building activities, and networking opportunities that will provide them the tools to become potential Deaf leaders in their Deaf communities for generations to come.
