Canada levies personal income tax on the worldwide income of individuals resident in Canada and on certain types of Canadian-source income earned by non-resident individuals.
After the calendar year, Canadian residents file a T1 Tax and Benefit Return for individuals.
It is due April 30, or June 15 for self-employed individuals and their spouses, or common-law partners. It is important to note, however, that any balance owing is due on or before April 30. Outstanding balances remitted after April 30 may be subject to interest charges, regardless of whether the taxpayer's filing due date is April 30 or June 15.

Tuition fees credit is settled against income, so if you do not have any income the fees credit is carried forwarded to next year until the full tuition fees credit is settled. Therefore the year you have income and corresponding tax deducted, you will get tax refund.
Beware, this is a fraud call, don’t pay any attention to it. CRA will never call to pay immediately and whatever amount you owe is stated on your NoA.
