Can i fill the tax returns online for the first time (Canada tax in 2013)?

I was sitting alone by myself for weeks trying to figure out what to do next. Some of people say you can't if this was your first time.

This link says :

You cannot use NETFILE to file your tax return if:

you are filing an income tax and benefit return for the first time with CRA and the CRA does not have a complete date of birth for the taxpayer on record;

Another link says :

If you are filing an income tax return with the Canada Revenue Agency for the first time (you never filed a paper return or had your return filed electronically by a tax professional), you will need to select the check box "I am filing an income tax return with the CRA for the first time". This action will display additional fields where you will be required to enter your given name, second name, and family name, where applicable.

What should i do? I would prefer doing online if its allowed me to, if not, i probably end up paying to a professional accountant which it might be cost $60......... please help me find out with the reference websites would be appreciated.
