Prior to filling your income tax return for the first time, you will need to “Determine Your Residency Status” for tax purposes. Your Canadian Immigration/Residency status does NOT determine your Residency Status for income tax purposes. In order to know which income tax forms to fill out, you must know your residency status. Types of Residency Status: • Resident – If you have been in Canada for more than 183 days in the year and you have residential ties to Canada, you are considered to be a resident only for tax purposes. You should complete a General Income Tax form. • Deemed Resident – You have been in Canada for more than 183 days in the year, but you have no significant ties to Canada, and you are not considered a resident of your home country under the terms of a tax treaty between Canada and your home country. You should complete a General Income Tax form for Non-Residents & Deemed Residents.
