This only applies if you immigrated to Canada in the year.
You cannot claim the CWB (fomerly the WITB) if you immigrated to Canada in the year. However, if you received CWB advance payments, you must include them.
Remember, it’s your responsibility to properly report your taxable Canadian income and allowable deductions and credits. We don’t provide tax advice and won’t respond to tax questions about immigration. If you don’t feel comfortable preparing your return, we recommend you obtain professional advice this year and we hope to see you again next year!
