Strengthening tax fairness by working with international partners to crack down on tax evasion and aggressive tax avoidance is a key commitment for the Government of Canada and will help to ensure that the tax system is fair for all Canadians.
The Government of Canada is committed to ensuring that the tax system is fair to all Canadians. To that end, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is working with its international partners to combat offshore tax evasion and aggressive tax avoidance by enhancing information sharing and refining its practices.
The Government of Canada continues to work to provide Canadians with high-quality service that will help them manage their tax and benefits online, anytime and anywhere. It will now be easier for Canadians to update and share their direct deposit banking information quickly and safely between the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), and Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).
The Government of Canada recognizes the importance of supporting persons with disabilities and their family members by ensuring they have access to all the tax measures to which they are entitled. To that end, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is committed to administering measures for persons with disabilities in a fair, transparent, and accessible way.
The Government of Canada is listening to Canadians from across the country and from all sectors and backgrounds about trade, including through roundtable discussions that focus on the need to support our goals of providing stable, rewarding and well-paying jobs for Canadians and helping grow our middle class. Canada, the United States and Mexico are working together to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). At the same time, the Government of Canada continues to pay close attention to Canadians’ views on trade and its importance to economic development.
The Government of Canada is committed to fair and responsible collective bargaining, and respectful collaboration with federal public servants. In collective bargaining, a true willingness of all parties involved to work together is in the best interest of all Canadians and employees.
Canadians work hard and expect their Government to do the same to ensure a tax system that is equitable, where everyone pays their fair share. The Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) Voluntary Disclosures Program (VDP) is a way for taxpayers to correct errors in their tax affairs. However, this program has been used by certain wealthy individuals and corporations as a way to avoid the consequences of their aggressive tax planning.
The Government of Canada recognizes that disabilities can have significant impacts on the daily lives of Canadians and their families. Vulnerable people in our society must be supported, including by ensuring they receive all tax credits and benefits to which they qualify.
The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) announced that Harpreet Kaur Sidhu of Burnaby, British Columbia, pleaded guilty, on December 8, 2017, in the Provincial Court of British Columbia, to one count of tax evasion under the Excise Tax Act.
