Finance committee  In the international and aggressive tax planning space, multinationals, our revenue generation target for the last fiscal year that ended March 31 was $380 million.

Finance committee  Just quickly, there are 400,000 cases a year in terms of taxpayer relief, and it's an important tool. As the minister mentioned, we have to be more timely, and some of the funds here will help to reduce the pressure in that area. I will also just quickly mention feedback. The ap

Finance committee  To bring it back to the $440 million, for example, those aren't the taxpayers who would be the focus, so none of the new monies we'd be voting today would be focused there. In fact, we reorganized our audit function to divide it in two. I have responsibility for the 10% that yi

Finance committee  The only thing I would hypothesize, because I don't know the specific cases, is that even in our smaller space, for example, pharmacists who are accepting gift cards, we are increasingly going after an entire population.

Finance committee  We always use FTEs because sometimes officials like myself get in trouble between FTEs and people, but broadly speaking, it's at 200, and broadly speaking, we have 150 or 160 in the door, but there is turnover on a continuous basis.

Finance committee  I'm going to come back to the question of scope that was raised before in terms of our focus. Roughly 10% of our audit, or 14,000 audits, are focused at people with a high net worth doing aggressive tax planning, and at multinationals. That yielded $8 billion last fiscal year in
