Since February 14th, LCCMedia Foundation, in partnership with Dexteritas Inc, has provided tax filing and benefits information and update services from Africa Centre. The Edmonton Community Foundation has generously funded this project facilitated by Africa Centre.

The service has benefitted from referrals from the Bissell Centre, 211 Alberta, Africa Centre, Al Rashid Mosque, CBC Edmonton.

The service has welcomed and served more than two hundred and fifty individuals and generated more than 300 tax returns. Much of the clientele has come from the Black African and Caribbean communities, Indigenous and Seniors communities.

The service has been supported by dedicated volunteers who have been critical to the project’s success.

LCCMedia Foundation will be at the Hope Mission on the 30th of April from 930am till 5 pm. If you are of modest income and still haven’t filed your taxes,  Get your taxes done at the free community tax clinic at Africa Centre located at suite 106, 6770-129 Avenue Edmonton AB, T5C 1V7.

For the 2022 tax season, we offer free tax filing services in-person or virtually from Monday to Thursday, 10.00 a.m to 5.00 p.m.
