The CRA has added a new feature to their online services this year so if you haven't been into your account in a while this is worth a check. They have added an uncashed cheques section in the other services list on the right hand side of the My Account home page. If the CRA has ever sent you any paper cheques that were never cashed - i.e. GST rebate cheques that may have gone astray - they will be listed here. If you have any unclaimed money you can call the CRA to get the cheque reissued or even direct deposited if you are currently set up for that. You will likely need to send them a letter saying that you never received cheque such and such and that you would like them to reissue it. For those of you that move around a lot especially this should be checked out. You can get at the My Account here: https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/e-services/e-services-individuals/account-individuals.html

My practice has evolved over the years to be almost entirely personal tax, and I specialize in people with cross border personal tax issues.
