Message to employees

It gives me great pleasure to greet you today as the Minister of National Revenue for the Government of Canada.

I am well aware of the important role that the Canada Revenue Agency serves – providing guidance and support to Canadians, both as individuals and businesses, in understanding and meeting their tax obligations, while also taking steps to ensure that those obligations are respected and Canada's revenue base is protected. In fulfilling these roles, you are in a unique position to touch the lives of every Canadian and to give meaning to the service principle that is so important to our new government.   

Over the coming months, I look forward to working with you to strengthen and expand our service to Canadians. I know there are many exciting opportunities to do so, whether by increasing our outreach activities to support lower-income and fixed-income Canadians, by encouraging the use of an ever-expanding list of e-services as a faster, easier way for Canadians to manage their tax affairs and communicate with the Agency, or by simplifying our correspondence so that it is easier to understand.  I am also committed to ensuring the Agency has the resources required to effectively pursue tax evaders and protect the integrity of Canada's tax system. 

Throughout, our goal must always be respect for citizens by delivering the quality of service that they expect and deserve.

As Prime Minister Trudeau has said, each and every time a government employee comes to work, they do so in the service of Canada, with a shared mutual goal of improving the country and the lives of all Canadians.  I value the professionalism, independence, commitment and expertise that you, as public servants, bring to your work. With your support, I look forward to all that we will accomplish together.

Minister of National Revenue
