We need to see documents that show current financial information for each adult contributing to your gross household income, as well as to verify your family's size and status. Specifically, the two documents we require are:
- The current year's Canada Revenue Notice of Assessment for each adult member of the household, even if their income is $0. The Notice of Assessment should show name, tax year, and Line 150 Gross Income. If you can't find your Notice of Assessment, you can contact CRA at 1-800-959-8281 for a replacement copy or Click Here for online information about how to obtain a copy of your Notice of Assessment.
- The current Canada Child Benefit (CCB/OCB) Notice mailed out in mid-July each year. Contact CRA at 1-800-387-1193 for a replacement copy. We can also accept the Ontario Trillium Benefit Notice or GST Credit Notice – please note: you don’t need to send all three of these documents – just one will do.
Alternatives to the above include:
- A recent Ontario Works (OW) statement that shows monthly amount.
- For refugees-immigrants, we can accept a Statutory Declaration from Immigrant Services or Settlement Services.
If you are uploading your financial documents to our secure online system, we still highly recommend you black out your Social Insurance Number (SIN).
