Canadians claim hundreds of dollars after little-known Canada Revenue Agency feature revealed

If you are understandably weary of CRA scams and thinking this is one of those too-good-to-be-true type social media stories – even the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) itself responded saying they just want Canadians to get the benefits they deserve.

Want to see if you’re owed money?
