April Volunteer of the Month

April 2013 - Income Tax Volunteer Team


“I am so excited about the Income tax season”! This is something you probably do not hear very often, unless you are part of the Income Tax Volunteer Team at ISC!  Since 2005, Immigrant Services Calgary has hosted Income Tax clinics where dedicated volunteers assist new comers to Canada with filing their income taxes.

Our team is led by Don Wall. During the Income Tax season, Don will assist over 300 beneficiaries with their income taxes. For many newcomers, filing their income taxes is an intimidating process. Don believes that every newcomer to Canada should receive the benefits that they are entitled to. From the first meeting Don is able to put beneficiaries at ease. He is able to explain the income tax filing system in a manner that everyone can understand.   Don’s wealth of experience and expertise is greatly valued at the income tax clinic sessions.              

Lilia, a volunteer since 2001, eagerly gives back to the community because, “I want to help people understand Canadian rules and to build a new life for themselves and their children.  I always say: if we could do it, so can you.”

The entire income tax team’s professional work ethic is reflected in the quality of service they give to all the beneficiaries.

To Don, Amrith Laidlaw, Cara Bradley, Chandramouli Muthukumaran , Jin Yan, John Urquiza, Li Luo, Lilia Luchik, Linda Wang, Mai Le, Mavis Ren, Nestor Vallejo, Oksana Grynishak, Rubina Abid, Sam Huda, Shu Xuan Huang………….Thank you for your tireless efforts and dedication to ISC Income Tax program!
