Protocol Signed Between Canada and Singapore

November 30, 2011





A Protocol amending the Convention between the Government of Canada and the Government of the Republic of Singapore for the Avoidance of Double Taxation and the Prevention of Fiscal Evasion with Respect to Taxes on Income, signed on March 6, 1976, was signed on November 29, 2011, in Singapore.

Consistent with the Government’s policy announced in Budget 2007, the Protocol includes provisions reflecting the standard developed by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development for the exchange of tax information.

Canada and Singapore will notify each other once their respective domestic implementation procedures are complete. The Protocol will enter into force 30 days after the date of the later of these notifications and its provisions will have effect from the date of entry into force.

A further notice advising of the entry into force of the Protocol will be communicated at that time.
