I am trying to mail my return to the CRA. Will the CRA consider the date of receipt to be the date that I mail the return or the date that it arrives at the CRA centre?

The CRA will consider the date that the return is sent as the date of receipt. That means, as long as you send your personal tax return by April 30, the CRA will not impose late filing penalty. You should keep the mailing receipt as proof of the filing date.
