Information & Ethics committee  I'm not aware of any breaches.

Information & Ethics committee  Just quickly in terms of context, data is being exchanged on the preceding tax years; in other words, in 2015 we shared tax data relating to 2014.

Information & Ethics committee  In terms of the agreement, the exclusion of RRSPs, TFSAs, and those kinds of accounts from the exchange and limiting certain small deposit-only institutions was an important narrowing of the scope of the exchange. Also, the mechanics of the exchange in terms of the timing of when

Information & Ethics committee  Right. The intergovernmental agreement with the U.S. confirms that the information would only be used for tax administration purposes, so any use under the Patriot Act would be a breach of the agreement the U.S. signed with us.

Information & Ethics committee  Protecting Canadians' personal information is really a process. The Privacy Commissioner confirms in his letters that meetings took place in December 2012, in August 2013, and in January 2014. Other unofficial discussions certainly took place before the document was produced. So

Information & Ethics committee  I’m sorry, but I am going to answer in English so that I don’t make any mistakes in my remarks.

The type of information that would be collected would be the name, the bank account number, the address, and information related to income deposits.
