Finance committee  From a compliance perspective, what the minister has asked the agency to do increasingly is to match our compliance response or intervention to the issue. Where possible, we need to be leading with education, with rules clarifications, maybe suggestions to the Department of Finan

Finance committee  Yes. Again, going back to that prior response, it is just not possible or practical across the large number of audits we do to individually track how much these taxpayers are paying. They have multiple debts. They make multiple payments across multiple tax years. We agree that i

Finance committee  Thank you. As the minister alluded, Canada leads a large business network for the OECD, and there are two areas where we've expressed that leadership. First, regarding the country-by-country reports, which is an automatic exchange of information of the global activities of multin

Finance committee  In fact, the confusion sometimes arises because the criminal prosecutions we undertake today won’t result in convictions for four, five or six years. For several years now, in criminal investigations, the agency has been focusing on offshore tax evasion. That’s why we’re currentl

Finance committee  The 37 for the prior year weren't 100% related to offshore. It was a mixture, because those are files that were started many years in the past. The number 42 is our current number of offshore-related criminal investigations open today. Those files will take many years to close. W

Finance committee  Fifty per cent, even for an individual program, seems to be very high. Even in the coverage of multinationals, for example, we have roughly 2,200 employees. We've hired 150 additional, but that doesn't get anywhere near 50%, so I would—

Finance committee  The most significant uptakes have been in offshore. The offshore area, since 2007, when we really didn't have an offshore area, has grown dramatically. The area of individuals with money in countries that are typically seen as tax havens has seen dramatic growth.

Finance committee  The vast majority are being staffed by people who did small and medium enterprises. They move up, and so they graduate. We have attempted external hiring, because we're very open to bringing in professionals mid-career, but we have not been terribly successful. I would say that t

Finance committee  We haven't had issues with staffing. We've been able to staff all of the positions. The ratio, from external to internal, hasn't been as biased towards external as we might have hoped, because I think we're open. We exceeded the first year target; that was the $380 million. We'v

Finance committee  The expectation was to identify $1.1 billion in additional tax owing, and we had met that as of December 31 or the third quarter. We're quite confident of exceeding that.

Ted Gallivan

Finance committee  Yes. To go back to the question about tracking the exact dollars that are collected, I would also emphasize that the deterrent impact of that increased effort is likely one of the factors that's influencing the 7.5% increase in corporate tax. On an annualized basis, that represen

Finance committee  First, the resources that we've received have been targeted. A lot of the money included business intelligence IT systems to target the highest risk, and for us, the highest risk correlates with dollars. If you look at the $12.5-billion annual overall result, two-thirds of it is
