As the situation caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) quickly evolves, we want to assure you that CommonWealth Financial is doing everything we can to keep our team, customers and the communities we serve safe.

Following the direction of the Public Health Agency of Canada, we continue to introduce new safety measures to help contain the spread of COVID-19.

Until further notice, these safety measures will now include a change to how we process income tax returns that normally facilitate in-person appointments.

To help minimize points of close contact in our communities, we will no longer be facilitating in-person appointments and ALL TAX FILES MUST BE LEFT IN THE DROP BOX TO THE RIGHT. There are envelopes in the tote, please place your tax files in an envelope and then into the secure lock box. Alternatively you can e-mail your tax return information to:

Stephanie Sanders - OR
Patrick Sanders -

This will eliminate the need for personal contact but will also ensure processing of your return.

All appointments have been cancelled up to March 31st, and we will notify our clients as soon as we begin the rescheduling process.

CommonWealth Financial will continue to monitor the rapidly evolving situation around COVID-19, and actively follows the guidance and safety recommendations of the Public Health Agency of Canada.

During this difficult and unprecedented period, as we continue to proudly serve you with your financial needs, please know that your safety and the safety of our employees remains our top priority.

Thank you for your understanding,

- The CommonWealth Financial Team
