The Ontario Opportunities Fund gives Ontario residents the chance to help lower the province’s debt. Contributing is easy; if you’d like to contribute a portion of your tax refund to the fund, you can do so using H&R Block’s tax software.
Note: Contributing to the Ontario opportunities fund can be useful to you too. Those who contribute to the fund receive an official receipt which allows them to claim a donation tax credit for the year the contribution was made.
