Together Against Poverty Society
Our legal advocacy projects provide help with income assistance and disability matters, and residential tenancy disputes. Our Volunteer Disability Advocate Project (VDAP) provides assistance with the application for provincial disability benefits, and our tax project helps with the filing of income tax.
Please note: At present, we are filing taxes on a pick-up/drop-off basis (no appointment needed.) If you'd like help filing your taxes please drop by our office during open hours (see below), and we can provide you with a tax package to complete.
TAPS does not assist with applications for income assistance or federal disability.
New and existing clients are encouraged to reach us in the following ways:
By calling our main phone-line: 250-361-3521
Some of our projects may be emailed directly, but for tenancy related requests you must call the above number. Due to volume we are not able to accept new requests by email.
