If you need a slip for an earlier year, you may be able to get a copy through My Account or by speaking to one of our agents at 1-800-959-8281.
You can also visit Service Canada to get electronic versions of your current and previous tax slips for old age security (OAS), employment insurance (EI), and the Canada pension plan (CPP).
