Re: Canadian Citizen; Project ... back in UK!

When you say "reclaim the uk tax" do you mean there's a box in your CRA return called "reclaim tax already paid in the UK" or "get credit for tax already paid elsewhere" similar?

Re: URGENT CIC Storm Closures

Re: Nova Scotia Community Identified Stream is no more after May 31 2013

Halifax will ask you to send the changed materials to them.

The idea is the fed portion of the provincial pack is identical to that which is sent to the feds. Thats the idea. Clearly if you want...
