Notice to all Non-Canadian Resident Shareholders
In 2012, the Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”) changed how the tax withholding rate applied to dividend payments made to non-residents is determined. The CRA now requires a certification of residency from each shareholder so that the preferred tax treaty rate can be applied where applicable to persons resident in countries which have a tax treaty with Canada.
