Default taxes

is it illegal to not claim my taxes back from a previous employer in canada when you are a temporary worker?

Don't quite understand the question? If you worked in Canada, you file a tax return to Revenue Canada. If you overpaid you get a refund, if you underpaid you pay the difference. Your employer collects the taxes off you pay and sends them to Revenue Canada.

It's a legal requirement to file a tax return if you were living and working in canada. I assume thats what you're asking. You should have got a T4 from your employer - phone the International tax dept of CRA and they can help. Deadline for submission is 30th April.

Not quite right. You are required to file a return if you owe tax. If you have overpaid tax then the CRA are quite happy to keep the excess. Also, if you have overpaid the 30th of April deadline doesn't matter.
