Income Tax Return – New Residents
As a rule, if you were resident in Québec on December 31 of a given taxation year, you must file a Québec income tax return for that year. Doing so gives you the opportunity to apply for certain assistance programs and claim tax benefits according to your situation.
Note that certain rules apply when you have income from foreign investments, when you receive a pension from a foreign country or when you decide to sell property you owned on the day you became a resident of Canada.
Consult the Income Tax Return section to see how to complete your income tax return.
Remember to enter the date you arrived in Canada on your income tax return.
