Use the Low Income Cut-offs table to determine if you qualify. 

If you do, then you can get proof of income several ways:

  • Online: Get a proof of income statement right away from the Canada Revenue Services Agency website in ‘My Account.’
  • Order through MyCRA web app
  • By mail: Phone 1-800-267-6999
    • Automated line is always open and a statement will be mailed
    • To verify your identity before you call you’ll need:
      • Social Insurance Number
      • Full name and date of birth
      • Your complete address
      • Line 15000 from your most recent tax assessment
      • This method may take up to 10 days to receive by mail
      • Notice of assessment (NOA), T1 General or T4 statement CANNOT be used to replace this document.
    • You need to submit Income Statements for all adult members of the family who contribute to the household.
