Canada: Double Tax Treaties

Introduction

A double tax treaty allows that tax paid can be offset in one of two countries against tax payable in the other, thus avoiding double taxation. Canada is a signatory to double tax treaties with several countries throughout the world. Some forms of income are exempt from tax or qualify for reduced rates. These include royalties, dividends and capital gains.
