Digital Services Tax Consultation

Current Status:  Closed

The government is committed to ensuring that corporations in all sectors, including digital corporations, pay their fair share of taxes on the money they earn by doing business in Canada. This consultation provided stakeholders the opportunity to provide views and feedback on the proposed approach to implementing the Digital Services Tax (DST) outlined in Budget 2021. Consultations ran from April 19, 2021 to June 18, 2021.  Thank you to everyone who participated.

Details of original proposal:

What’s next?

We will analyze your feedback and consider it alongside departmental analysis to help inform decisions on the proposed DST. It is anticipated that draft legislation for a new statute implementing the DST will be released for public comment in summer 2021, taking into account the feedback received.

While these formal consultations have concluded, Canadians are welcome to share their ideas and comments with the Department of Finance at any time.
