OPSEU Local 415 Communications Officer

Free tax clinic for staff and students on low income

The following message is being sent on behalf of ACORN, an independent anti-poverty organization that represents low and moderate income families. We advocate for access to affordable housing, safer neighborhoods, and higher standards of living in our communities. ACORN is endorsed by OPSEU 415.

They want to let you know about their Free Tax Clinic that helps low-income families and vulnerable persons file their taxes and avoid the high fees associated with corporate providers.

In order to support this service, they run a cost-recovery Tax Collective, which allows community members who exceed the low income cut-off to file their taxes at a reduced rate.

This is a feel-good tax-filing service where the fees support ACORN’S community development efforts. It provided a more ethical and affordable alternative to corporate providers.

This maybe of particular interest to your students

With tax season fast approaching, individuals may book an appointment with our Tax Collective now  by emailing us at taxcollective@acorncanada.org

Fight poverty while getting your taxes done! 

For more information, contact Liam Bedard, Tax Collective Coordinator Ottawa ACORN 404 McArthur Avenue 613-746-5999

Petition to expand the CPP/QPP

We need to do something about retirement income. Even bank economists have started to say RRSPs have failed.There’s too much risk and not enough security to ensure that, after a lifetime of work, people can retire and live out their last years in dignity. Too many of today’s seniors live in poverty and too many older workers are realizing their retirement plans have come up short because the investment return were promised never to materialized or they simply could not save enough on their own.The financial services industry pays itself juicy fees to manage your money and that eats up a big part of your retirement  savings-if you have any retirement savings left when you are ready to retire, after  the roller coaster dips and dives of the stock market.

The best way to help today’s workers save enough money for tomorrow is by increasing what everybody gets from the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) as a share of their total retirement income.

Expanding the CPP is about preparing for the future, and leaving behind a better system for our kids.

Join thousands of Canadians who are telling their Members of Parliament to increase pension benefits under the Canada and Quebec Pension Plans, and implement a fully funded plan  to phase in such a increase without delay.
