Brenda Woodman - Nominated By Alberta Works

CIABrendaBrenda works closely with Alberta Works, and for the last 2 years has been integral in the delivery of their Free Volunteer Income Tax Program that is organized by Canada Revenue Agency, to provide an important service that helps individuals with modest income and a simple tax situations to file their tax return.  After taxes are completed, this allows community members to access the government benefits they are entitled to,and different community organizations that can further assist their needs.
