Organizations from different sectors across the country representing over 4 million Canadians have come together to form the new Coalition for Tax Fairness — in support of the federal government’s efforts to close unfair tax loopholes that allow some wealthy Canadians to reduce their taxes using private corporations. The group issued a joint statement today. Membership is open and the coalition is growing fast.
Canadians for Tax Fairness is hiring a full-time Program Manager for a new two-year project to tackle the problem of shell companies in Canada and the need to ensure transparency of beneficial ownership of corporate registrations. The application deadline is September 12, 2017 for an October starting date.
KPMG. SNC Lavalin. These are only a few of the companies that have been awarded lucrative supply contracts from our federal government. Trouble is, they, and many other companies have used tax havens right under the government's nose. And the current rules do nothing to stop them from geting those contracts. It is time to change the rules and tell companies that tax haven use disqualifies them from taxpayer money.
