Why are Tax Haven Users Getting Govt Contracts?

The federal government is giving lucrative contracts to suppliers who avoid paying their share of taxes by using tax havens. This includes individuals and organizations named in the Panama Papers. Those findings, and recommended changes to the current rules, are contained in a report by Canadians for Tax Fairness and the labour organization Unite Here.

The organizations have sent that report to the Minister of Public Works and Government Services (PWGS) urging changes in the procurement rules. Currently, those rules do not penalize businesses that avoid taxes by moving money to offshore tax havens.
