Register as a Volunteer

The SFU Tax Program, “Students Offering Support” is a non-profit student-run initiative that aims to provide support and assistance to SFU students and low-income individuals in filing their Canadian tax returns. The Tax Program is a great opportunity for volunteers to gain experience and give back to the community by learning and applying knowledge about the Canadian Taxation Rules.

Registration is now closed. We are no longer accepting new volunteers until 2023. To stay updated with our opportunities, follow our Instagram @sfuasa and Facebook page @SimonFraserASA
