Canadians are entitled to a fair and equitable tax administration – one which allows them to resolve disputes when they disagree with a tax decision made by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The CRA understands that the resolution of income tax objections in a timely manner gives Canadians the certainty they need to make informed decisions for themselves and their families.
The Government of Canada recognizes the importance of ensuring a healthy, competitive, and stable housing market for all Canadians, while also working to improve tax fairness. To that end, the Government of Canada has taken significant steps to address tax cheating in real estate transactions.
Canadians work hard, pay their share of taxes and expect a tax system that is responsive and fair. Unfortunately, some wealthy Canadians continue to find ways to not pay what they owe, which places an unfair burden on Canadians. This situation has to change. That is why the Government of Canada is cracking down on tax cheats.
The Government of Canada recognizes the difficulties faced by Canadians affected by recent flooding across the country, particularly in Quebec and Ontario, and is committed to help reduce their burden.
Charities play a key role in Canadian society and provide valuable services to Canadians. The Government of Canada recognizes the vast experience they bring to public debate and to the formulation of public policy.
