Government of Canada: Changing Your Address With the Federal Government

When we talk about changes of address with the federal government, we mainly refer to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

You can change your address in one of four (4) ways:

  1. From your CRA online account. If you do not already have an account, you can register for free. Please note: to create a new account, certain information is required, some of which are included only on your annual tax return.
  2. By calling 1-800-959-7383. You will be asked to provide this information.
  3. By mail or fax
    • Complete and send Form RC325 (Change of Address)  to one of the tax centers indicated on the form.
    • Send with Form RC325 a signed letter that includes your Social Insurance Number, your new address and the date of the move.
  4. You will also have the opportunity to provide your new address to the CRA on your annual tax return. The new address will automatically be updated in your file.

Why Notify the CRA of My New Address?

how-to-change-address-government-quebec-CRA-login

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) communicates with you a few times a year. During tax season for example, the CRA will send you an explanatory document for your annual tax return. If your address is not up-to-date, you might not receive this document. Lucky for you, you can still pick it up at your local post office and/or online directly on your CRA account.

Once your tax return is processed by the CRA, the agency will send you a notice of assessment. This is a very important document assessing if you’ll receive money back or if you owe money!

Finally, if you receive benefits from the federal government, your address must be updated to ensure you continue receiving them.
