Madam Speaker, earlier this week, the CRA suspended 100,000 taxpayer accounts after learning that their log in credentials were found on the dark web. Individuals were informed that in order to unlock their accounts they would have to contact the CRA. However, as many Canadians have found during this pandemic, it is very difficult to get a hold of the CRA.
This is a challenging problem for many people as they are depending on their pandemic benefits as well as filing their tax returns to the CRA. What is the minister going to do to ensure that Canadians are not harmed by CRA's actions?
