How do I determine my residency status?

Figuring out your residency status can be tricky, especially since it depends on so many factors that vary from person to person. Thankfully, the CRA has provided some guidelines to help you determine your status.

If you would like the CRA’s opinion (it will not be legally binding) on your residency status, you can fill out one of the forms below (whichever is applicable) and mail it to your tax centre. For a more accurate result, include as much as information as possible.
