For the past 20 years, volunteers have been helping Quesnel file their taxes, and in 2022, the program continues.

The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVTIP) has been active in Quesnel for the last 20 years.

Program Lead Sharon Anderson guessed the program helps over 300 people each year. In 2020 over 400,000 people across Canada were helped by CVITP.

“I enjoy doing it,” Anderson, who has been working with the program since 2001, said.

“I also go to anyone who can’t make it to our clinics. If they’re housebound, I will go to their house.”

This year, the program will be open by appointment on Wednesdays and Thursdays in downtown Quesnel’s Spirit Square until April 28. Offices are open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The CVITP will be hosted by the North Cariboo Seniors’ Council (NCSC).

“We are excited for the opportunity to support CVTIP, as it not only fits NCSC vision that protects and enhances safety, quality of life, livability and sustainability of senior citizens in our community but all individuals in the Quesnel area.” NCSC president Brenda Gardiner said in a news release.

To schedule an appointment contact Sharon at 250-747-2132 or Ron at 250-316-0330.
