I just realized that after logging in my CRA account, there are four years listed in the Tax returns and Notice of Assessment and Reassessment section, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. The status listed under 2016 is Not Received. Do I have to file for every year listed over listed in that table? Or, does it listed out simply the status of the last couple years? Do I have to refile for the year 2016 now?

I was in Canada for 2.5 months in 2016, I moved here permanently in August 2017.

Thanks.

No you didn’t need to file taxes in 2016 if you didn’t have ties to Canada that would have made you a tax resident.
