Course Description

Canada and the United States share the world’s largest economic relationship – cross-border trade generates over $400 billion (US) per year. Given the sheer number and variety of cross-border transactions, it is no surprise that the Canada-U.S. Tax Treaty is Canada’s most significant treaty.


The preamble of the Canada-US Tax Treaty states that the purpose of the treaty is to avoid double taxation and prevent fiscal evasion concerning taxes on income and capital.


Correctly interpreting the Canada-US Tax Treaty is an extremely technical process. The reason for this is because the two countries have not only different tax rules but also use different fundamental vocabulary.


This online CPE/CPD course will help you understanding the United States - Canada Tax Treaty. There is a tremendous amount of economic activity occurring cross-border between the U.S. and Canada. These transactions can give rise to both intended and unintended tax consequences.

This online CPD webinar will cover the most critical issues such as residency, permanent establishments, and the taxation of business profits. It will also review many other common situations dealt with in the treaty. Where possible, planning opportunities will be discussed to help minimize the potential income taxes arising from cross-border transactions.

Major topics covered in this online CPE/CPD webinar:

  • Tax Treaty interpretation
  • Tax implications for different types of operations
  • In-depth review of permanent establishments and various types and implications
  • In-depth review of residency for individuals and corporations
  • Anti-abuse issues
