Tax Treaty Negotiations with Madagascar and Namibia

October 13, 2005

Negotiations for the conclusion of an income tax treaty between Canada and Madagascar will begin November 7, 2005, in Antananarivo, while similar negotiations with Namibia will begin November 14, 2005, in Windhoek.

The purpose of this bulletin is to ensure that persons whose interests are affected have an opportunity to inform the government of any particular issues of double taxation, which might be resolved in a tax treaty. The government is particularly interested in learning of any difficulties encountered by Canadians under the tax system of these two countries, so that these issues might be taken into account in negotiations.
