Air Canada continues online tax slips offer
This February, all Canada-based active employees (Ed: and retirees) will be able to log in to HR Connex, view their tax slips online and download/print them at their convenience.
The system automatically lists employees as having
“consented” to accessing tax slips exclusively online. If you’d
still like to receive a paper slip, you must withdraw your
consent from the system by Jan. 20 (before 12 a.m. EST).
Log in to HR Connex and follow these steps:
1. Look under Pay & Compensation
2. Click on Consent for Online Year-End Tax Slips
3. Tick Check here to withdraw your consent to receive
Online Year-End tax slips
Even though you are “withdrawing consent,” you will still have
access to your tax slips online. However, you will also be
registered to receive a paper tax slip in the mail.
ROSE ANNE’S STORY
Rose Ann reflects on how supportive her Air Canada family has been throughout her career and how they have continued to be an integral part of her life as she writes her next chapter.
Nicole has followed her passion for art and enjoys sharing this passion and her time with other Pionairs members. The sense of belonging her fellow Pionairs give her reassure her that the bonds of friendship will last far beyond her retirement.
DISCOVER YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE
During our time at Air Canada, we forge strong bonds that can be described more like family than just friendships. The Air Canada Pionairs allows us to maintain those relationships while exploring the next chapter in our lives. These are bonds that helped define who we are and help prepare us for what comes next…
Pionairs is the official organization recognized by Air Canada to represent retired employees. We are available to answer your questions and provide you with relevant information, updates on travel privileges and industry news, pension and benefits, and more…
The Air Canada Pionairs organization is part of a large family that shares a common bond and so much history. We have a love of the airline industry, but what we treasure most is the many lifelong friendships we have made over the years.
I believe it is absolutely essential that Air Canada’s retirees maintain a strong and dynamic organization dedicated to the welfare of its members. If you’re not yet a member, we’d love to have you join us. Just click on ‘Join Pionairs.’
