New type of newcomer women navigate dysfunctional tax system
The Tiwala.ca Project (“tiwala” means “trust” in the language of our large, initial client base) is an organized advocacy group formed to ensure systemically accurate and equitable Canadian income tax rights and benefits for new types of newcomer taxpayers (mostly women) in vulnerable, disadvantaged, low income employment positions. Our mission is to work collaboratively with targeted taxpayers’ groups, federal and provincial politicians and public service organizations including the CRA. Our membership design is to draw prominent individuals with a wide range of expertise from areas such as law, accounting, political science, human behavior, system design, IT, social services, advocacy groups and selected clients. This expertise is indicated from extensive research of the tax system, which indicates that serious systemic faults may arise from a plethora of sources as varied as system error, human error, inconsistent information and unhelpful behaviour caused by the frustration of red tape. Our successes to date have resulted in direct financial and equality gains to clients and have inevitably come from collaborative innovation. Our initial goals include recovering entitled/eligible $80M+ systemically and on a wide-scale missing and omitted for up to 10 years back. We believe our contribution to society will flourish as member of CSI, with its unparalleled collaborative attitude and creative community.
