For those of you that are still waiting on your T4 from your employer, you should have received it by now.
Your employer’s responsibility
It is your employers responsibility to file and provide your T4 from the previous year, by the last day in February of the current year.
The official wording from CRA specifically states that employers must:
Give employees their T4 slips on or before the last day of February following the calendar year to which the slips apply.
What to do if you still don’t have your T4
For those that have not received your T4 yet, the best method is to contact your employer directly and request them to send you a copy. Many will be able to provide this via email, which is particularly useful if you are no longer living in Canada and is the quickest method of obtaining it.
Accessing T4s through your myCRA account
Another option of accessing your T4, especially if it is from a previous tax year, is by logging into your myCRA account. This can give you access if your employer filed it in a previous year.
