Finance committee  I think the essence of the problem is it's neither domestic nor international, but there is value created in Canada that isn't necessarily created by entities with physical presence in Canada, and that's really the nub of the problem in terms of both the allocation of tax revenue

Finance committee  Perhaps I'll start with the second question and ask colleagues to respond to the rest. The CRA publishes data on the wage subsidy on, I think, a weekly basis, and clearly many firms and, as I think the minister mentioned, up to four million employees have been supported, or jobs

Finance committee  Perhaps I'll answer that, Mr. Chair.

Finance committee  Clearly, the digitization of the economy poses challenges for the tax system, and as I'm sure you saw in the fall economic statement, there were three measures proposed in that statement to address some of the sales tax challenges of digital goods and services of non-resident, no

Finance committee  It is a policy question. I'll note the question. In terms of clarification, I think the exemption from the fuel charge applies to fuel used in farm machinery, which is typically oil and diesel.

December 8th, 2020Committee meeting

Andrew Marsland

Finance committee  Thank you for the question. The department does all kinds of analyses all the time, but in terms of costing particular models, I'm not aware that we have costed any specific model. Of course, the revenue implications of any particular policy depend very much on the design of tha

Finance committee  Again, thank you for the question. I think, as was identified, it's really an issue for the Canada Revenue Agency, which has used resources that the government has devoted to the whole issue of international tax avoidance and evasion. There have been resources and efforts in tha

December 8th, 2020Committee meeting

Andrew Marsland

Finance committee  Thank you for the question. You're correct in that earlier in the year, the government announced a temporary reduction in the minimum registered retirement income fund withdrawals in recognition of the circumstances that existed then. I must admit that I don't know the answer t

December 8th, 2020Committee meeting

Andrew Marsland

Finance committee  Thank you for the question. I don't know the answer to that question. The wage subsidy is provided under the provisions of the Income Tax Act, and the act generally prohibits the disclosure of taxpayer information. There is an exception with relation to the name of those emplo

Andrew Marsland

Finance committee  Mr. Chair, the question was posed to the minister and the minister responded. As you say, it's a policy question.

December 8th, 2020Committee meeting

Andrew Marsland

Finance committee  I'm afraid I'm not going to comment at all, one way or another, on a policy question. Those are questions for the government. In terms of the particular grant, as was observed, that was from CMHC, and it is probably better placed to answer that question.

December 8th, 2020Committee meeting

Andrew Marsland

Finance committee  I'm usually clearer that way. Thank you again for the question, but again, I'm not going to comment on that policy question. Thank you.

Finance committee  There's no opening statement, but we'd be happy to—

Andrew Marsland

Public Accounts committee  I don't think we're aware of specific examples of businesses having left the country. Clearly, when there is a weakness in the system, it creates potential for distortion, and I think that is one important reason that the government is moving forward with these measures: It's to

December 3rd, 2020Committee meeting

Andrew Marsland

Public Accounts committee  Perhaps I could answer that question by referring to the experience of other countries. I'll begin with the work done at the OECD over many years to develop a framework, a common framework, to do this. That framework is the one that the government is proposing to follow with re
