Here is How You Can Add Your Voice to the Call – No public funding for corporations that dodge taxes
“Canada loses at least $8 billion in revenues each year to international corporate tax dodging.” – Canadians for Tax Fairness
“More of Canada’s peers, including France, Denmark and Poland, announced recently they will restrict corporations that use tax havens from receiving COVID-19 financial aid. Canada should also take action to keep public funding from making tax-dodging corporations and their executives richer.” – Canadians for Tax Fairness
A Call-Out to All of Us from Canadian for Tax Fairness, citizens advocates for a fairer tax system in Canada
Posted April 29th, 2020 on Niagara At Large
A number of countries including France, Denmark, and Poland recently announced they won’t provide COVID-19 financial aid to companies that use tax havens.
Canada should bring in similar rules to prevent our public money from padding the profits of corporations that abuse tax havens to hide their wealth and dodge Canadian taxes. Please tell Finance Minister Bill Morneau that public funding shouldn’t go to corporations that don’t contribute their fair share.
The federal government is spending billions to help Canadian families, workers and businesses stay afloat in these difficult times.
While these supports are necessary, public money shouldn’t be siphoned off by companies that dodge taxes, or to make their executives and shareholders wealthier.
Please sign our letter (click on the link below) asking Minister Morneau and your federal representative to put these conditions on federal funding. https://www.taxfairness.ca/sites/all/modules/civicrm/extern/url.php?u=3129&qid=535947
