Tax information for International students

Below is tax information for International students in Canada from the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA).

If you have a Social Insurance Number (SIN), use it to file your tax return. If not, contact Service Canada to see if you are eligible for one. For more information on how to apply for a SIN or to find a Service Canada centre near you, visit Service Canada, or call 1-800-206-7218.

If you are not eligible to get a SIN, complete Form T1261, Application for a Canada Revenue Agency Individual Tax Number (ITN) for Non-Residents, and send it along with your tax return forms. For more information, call the CRA at 1-800-959-8281.
