An Introduction to Canadian Taxes
Wednesday February 13, 2013 

The Provost's Office in conjunction with the Family Care Office and the Faculty Relocation
Service hosts a workshop for new faculty members from outside Canada entitled Filing for the First Time: An Introduction to Canadian Taxes. The session will take place at the Faculty Club from 8:45 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Previous workshops have been very highly rated
by participants.

Ruth Reimer from Green, Chencinski, Starkman and Eles (GCSE) will provide a
workshop session which will introduce the process of filing taxes in Canada and discuss
some of the details of filing in both Canada and the US. Time will also be allowed for
discussion, questions and answers. Some faculty members may also wish to arrange more individualized consultation with GCSE at their own cost.
