Update on Bill C-377 from Bill Daniels IVP

BDanielsGreetings,

Earlier today the Minister for National Revenue, Hon. Diane Lebouthillier, P.C., M.P., announced that the reporting requirements for labour organizations and labour trusts, arising from Private Members Bill C-377, will be waived for the 2015 & 2016 reporting periods.

Although this step does not repeal the legislation, it only waives the reporting requirements for 2015 and 2016 reporting periods; this is a good first step to upholding an election promise made by the Liberal party.

We will continue to press for the full repeal of the legislation and will keep you posted on any news regarding this legislation as it arises.

Full text of the announcement can be found here –

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

In solidarity,

Bill Daniels

International Vice President
