Understanding Personal Income Taxes

Taxes are an essential part of the Canadian economy, but what are your tax obligations as a student? Join us as we look at how Canada’s tax system works, when students are required to pay taxes, and some strategies you can implement to decrease your tax burden now, and in the future. With planning, taxes can even become an exciting prospect!

The goal of “Understanding Personal Incomes Taxes” is to give a basic overview of the Canadian personal income tax system, with an emphasis on the expectations of post-secondary students. You will learn how taxes impact your finances as you start your careers and start making more money; specific deductions and credits available to post-secondary students; and some of the tax efficient government programs that can defer, or even shelter a portion of your income from taxes.
