Taxability of Phoenix damages

Victory for members across the country!

In a victory for PSAC members impacted by the Phoenix pay fiasco, PSAC has secured an agreement with the Canada Revenue Agency to treat up to $1,500 of the Phoenix general damages compensation members received in 2021 as non-taxable.  

All members who have not already filed a notice of objection must file an extension request and notice of objection by April 30, 2024 to be eligible for their Phoenix general damages compensation to be deemed non-taxable.  To file, click here
