File your tax for free

Never be scared to fill your tax on your own. It is economic and actually easier than you think. These days intelligent softwares like UFile would ask you Interview Type Questions, and you just have to bear with it. Finally, the software will automatically prepare a printable copy of filled documents which are well aligned with CRA. The best thing is that, for students and low income families, it could be absolutely FREE.

Quebec is my home too…

- An allophone’s perspective

I came to Montreal at the age of 5, right in the middle of the huge 97’ ice storm. For someone who had lived in a hot temperate weather like the one in Nepal, this was quite a welcome I received. In my 5-year-old eyes, the snow, the ice and yes, the cold, were things that were majestic - this was how Quebec welcomed me and it’s a welcome that I still haven’t forgotten today, 15 years later. Yes people complain about the cold and the snow but to me, it was never a source of complaint –it’s part of Quebec’s magic and still today, there is nothing more beautiful in my eyes than a cold December day, watching the snow swirl down from the comfort of my kitchen, sipping hot cocoa (and yes, I do realize that many drivers out there, including my parents, disagree to this!)
