To register, you will need your Social Insurance Number (SIN), copies of both current and previous year's personal income tax returns, as well as a line number amount from one of these returns.

Registration for a Canada Revenue Agency user ID and password requires providing your personal and business information. You'll need your social insurance number as well as copies of both current and previous year's personal tax returns; the line amount requested may differ between returns, so have each one handy.
Once you have all your information ready, head to the CRA My Account for Individuals website and click on "Register with CRA User ID and Password." This will take you to a page where you can select which service you would like to utilize, then follow the on-screen instructions accordingly.
Next, you will be asked to enter one of the line amounts from your personal tax and benefit returns. Which amount you enter depends on which year you filed those returns for.
After entering this information, you'll be asked to select and answer five security questions. These will be used as identification when logging into your CRA online account.
Once your account registration process is complete, CRA will send you your user ID and password via mail - usually within 10 business days after completing the account registration process. With these credentials, you can sign in using the same account information used for other services (like online banking with CRA) or with your BC Services Card.
The Community Reinvestment Act was implemented to guarantee federally insured banks meet the credit needs of low- and moderate-income neighborhoods where they are chartered. Regulators conduct lending, investment and service tests to evaluate a bank's performance within an assessment area; these tests are customized according to depository institution characteristics and asset size as well as surrounding geographies. The law helps guarantee banks meet their responsibilities to their communities while encouraging economic growth and job creation in underserved areas.
