Federal and Provincial Tax Law

Tax law extends to both levels of government (Québec and Canada), which each have their own particularities and representatives. At the federal level, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) ensures compliance with federal tax laws and the collection of income taxes. In Québec, it’s the Agence du revenu du Québec, better known as Revenu Québec, that manages the tax system.
