Canada's new Minister of National Revenue acknowledges TEI and its members.

The following letter, dated August 26, 2004, was sent to Morio Tombari, 2003-2004 Vice President--Canadian Affairs, from the Canadian Minister of National Revenue, the Honorable John McCallum, P.C., M.P.

As the newly named Minister of National Revenue, I am pleased to take this opportunity to recognize the long-standing relationship that the Tax Executives Institute (TEI) and its members have had with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)

The TEI has been a key partner in providing valuable feedback to the CRA in areas relating to business taxation. Working with the TEI on issues that have a national impact is of great importance to me.

The free flow of views and opinions is key to sound policy development and to the efficient administration of the programs for which the CRA is responsible. I look forward to working with the TEI to ensure that the CRA provides Canadians with the most efficient services while increasing compliance and lessening the taxpayers administrative burden.

I am enthusiastic about the opportunities and challenges that have been given to me by the Prime Minister, and I look forward to continuing the working relationship that the CRA enjoys with the TEI.
