Can Factual resident qualify for GST, UCB and child tax benefit while they were living outside Canada for 10 years? They want to file for 2014, 2015 & 2016 tax years.

A family (Husband, wife and daughter 12 years old now) left Canada in 2009, worked in Middle East and returned in March 2017. They are Canadian citizens and have no status in middle east other than employment. No ties to Canada while they were away. I am wondering if they would be considered factual residents and the tax return would be just a regular return with the foreign income? Would they be qualified for GST, UCB and CTB for 2014, 2015, 2016. They never filed any NR73 or NR74. Would it be too late to file NR73 and NR74 with their tax return (paper filed)? Would really appreciate your help.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
