Tax Treaty Negotiations with Switzerland

June 7, 2017

Negotiations to update the income tax treaty between Canada and the Swiss Confederation will be held in June 2017.

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

Persons wishing to offer comments concerning the negotiations should send their views to the Department of Finance at:
