Parliament has passed the government’s controversial Bill C-51, enacting the Security of Canada Information Sharing Act. A related amendment to subsections 241(9) and (10) of the Income Tax Act gives CRA officials the power to share taxpayer information with 16 other Government of Canada agencies and departments (such as the RCMP, CSIS, FINTRAC, the Department of National Defence, and the Department of Citizenship and Immigration) if there are reasonable grounds to suspect the information would be relevant to an investigation into threats to national security or terrorism offences.
