Winfield Tax Collection Clinic

FCSS has teamed with the Canadian Volunteer Income Tax Program and is offering free income tax preparations for qualifying individuals.  We are able to assist individuals and families with modest income, students and seniors under predetermined income thresholds.

  • self-employment income or employment expenses
  • business or rental income and expenses
  • interest income over $1,000
  • capital gains or losses
  • foreign property (T1135)
  • bankrupt individuals in the year of bankruptcy (or the year prior, if that return has not been filed)
  • deceased individuals

"The Staying Alive Opioid Harm Reduction campaign provides tools to better assist individuals in minimizing their risk of opioid poisoning. The information provided within the Staying Alive: Opioid Harm Reduction booklet provides information and tools for a harm reduction strategy. Hard copies of this document have been distributed provincially to various agencies, correctional centres, and non-profit organizations.

The materials below have been created and distributed to correctional centres across Alberta, with help and input from people who have experienced incarceration and/or substance use. We hope that these materials can help to keep all members of our communities more healthy and safe."
