Canadian residents are required to report worldwide income from all sources for Canadian Income Tax purposes. If you fail to do this, or if you choose an offshore structure that violates the intention or spirit of the Canadian Income Tax Act, you could face a battle with the Canada Revenue Agency, and if you lose you will be subject to interest and penalties. We are a Toronto income tax law firm who can advise taxpayers in any Canadian province and assist non-residents immigrating to Canada.
