On Wednesday April 19, 2023 the Public Service Alliance of Canada declared a general strike. Bargaining groups including the 39,000 represented employees of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), are on strike. The federal government is still in negotiations with the groups.
What a CRA strike means
At this point, there has been no indication this strike by the CRA employees would result in an extension of the T1 filing deadline to later than May 1st. Certain CRA services will be delayed or disrupted. There will likely be delays in processing returns and issuing refunds. It is still important to have your personal tax return filed this month. Please provide your personal tax information at your earliest opportunity so that your returns can be prepared.
