In the lead article CALU’s Tax Consultant Kevin Wark discusses the scope of international and domestic developments that will result in enhanced tax compliance activity. This, in turn, will significantly increase the likelihood of audit activity for those taxpayers who are pursuing “overly” aggressive approaches to reduce their Canadian tax bill.

Also in this issue:

  • Alison Minard of Miller Thomson discusses the Ontario Court of Appeal decision in Moore v. Sweet, which considered who was entitled to the proceeds of an insurance policy; and
  • Ian M. Hull and Nick Esterbauer of Hull & Hull LLP review the estate and insurance planning implications of medical assistance in dying.

We are also pleased to have a message from Chair Gilles Chevalier about recent and upcoming CALU activities; a reminder about meeting your MP this summer; and an article from Brett Aylward of FleishmanHillard, CALU’s government relations firm.
