If I didn't receive an information slip, do I still need to report the income?

Yes. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) requires you to report all taxable income, regardless of whether or not you received a slip for it.

If you are missing or did not receive an information slip, contact the person who normally provides your slips and request that a copy be sent to you.

In some cases, the CRA may also be able to provide the slip. Contact them to find out if a copy is available to share with you. Or, sign up for a CRA My Account and add the slip through Auto-fill my return.

If you are unable to acquire a copy of the slip before the filing due date:


  • The CRA will expect you to include estimated amounts for the slip on your return. Use any stubs or statements you have to estimate the income (and any related deductions or credits).
  • If you're mailing your return, attach a note listing which slips are missing, the payers' name and address, the type of income, and a description of your efforts to acquire the slip(s). In your note, include the calculations you used to arrive at the estimated amounts.
  • If you're filing electronically, keep all your documents in case CRA asks to see them.
