Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is a federal agency that administers tax laws for the Government of Canada and for most provinces and territories. The CRA administers most individual income taxes in Canada except those for residents of Quebec. The taxation of corporations in Canada is administered by the CRA except for the provinces of Alberta and Quebec.

The CRA collects the Goods and Services Tax (GST) (the Canadian federal value added tax) of 5% in all provinces except Quebec. In British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Ontario, the GST has been replaced by the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). The HST combines the national GST and the provincial sales tax into a single transaction. HST is administered by the CRA.
