Income Tax

As an international student studying in Canada, you may have to file a Canadian Income Tax Return. Visit Taxes for International students studying in Canada on the CRA website to learn more about how income taxes work in Canada and if you need to file a tax return.

Normally, income tax returns must be filed on or before April 30 for the previous year. To learn more, please visit Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

You may be eligible for assistance with completing your income tax return from a free tax clinic in your area or online.

Your T2202 official tax receipt will be available in your myBCIT account from the last day in February. You can use this for tax purposes. You may also have other tax slips, such as a T4 from your employer.
