Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Employees Strike

On April 19, 2023, the Union of Taxation Employees (PSAC-UTE) members have gone on strike.

As a result of PSAC-UTE’s decision to begin labour action, Canadians should expect that some CRA services will be delayed or unavailable. While there are no plans to extend tax filing deadlines, the CRA will continue to accept all tax returns. Those that are filed digitally, which represent the vast majority of T1 and T2 returns, will largely be processed automatically by our systems without delay.

For information on any impacts to services, Canadians can consult the Contact Us page for more details and current wait times and Labour disruptions impact at the Canada Revenue Agency pages for more information as the situation continues to evolve.
