“The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) works closely with other law enforcement agencies and departments on cases involving tax evasion, money laundering and the underground economy. Our partnership with the CBSA in this and other cases exemplifies how collaboration leads to great results. The CRA’s Criminal Investigations Program is committed to investigating the most serious cases of tax evasion.”
Elvis Dutra, Assistant Director, Criminal Investigations, CRA
