Referee CRA Information

Referee Important CRA Information  

In order to comply with CRA regulations, all referees must supply NSYSA with their SIN number and birthdate in order to be scheduled to referee and receive payment. A referee cannot be scheduled a game until the required information is received.

If a referee’s annual remuneration is greater than $500, the NSYSA will issue a T4A slip by the end of February each year reporting the remuneration received in the prior calendar year.  There will be no income or other taxes withheld from any referee payments.

For further information, please go to the CRA website at: https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency.html

Referees under the age of 15:
Under the BC Employment Standards Act (Part 2, Section 9), any persons under the age of 12 may not be employed without a permit first being obtained from the Director of the Employment Standards Branch.  Due to this new restriction, NSYSA is unable to hire referees until they are 12 years of age.

In addition, any referees between the ages of 12 and 15 must have a signed Parental Consent form on file with NSYSA prior to being permitted to referee any games.  If this applies to your child please complete the following form: Parental Consent Form
