Taxpayers' Ombudsman speaks at Greater Sudbury Chamber of Commerce during national outreach tour

SUDBURY, ON, June 3, 2011 /CNW/ - Mr. J. Paul Dubé, Canada's Taxpayers' Ombudsman, today met with members of the Greater Sudbury Chamber of Commerce.

"Visiting communities like Sudbury offer an opportunity to raise awareness of taxpayers' rights and foster dialogue with stakeholders," said Mr. Dubé. "I want Canadians to know that they have someone independent and impartial to review their complaints about the way they are served and treated by the Canada Revenue Agency."

Re-appointed in February 2011 for a second term as Taxpayers' Ombudsman, Mr. Dubé's mandate is to ensure that all Canadians receive fair treatment and professional service from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). He also identifies systemic issues, those that have the potential to negatively impact large numbers of taxpayers.

"We are very pleased to welcome Mr. Dubé to Sudbury today," said Debbi Nicholson, President and CEO of the Greater Sudbury Chamber of Commerce. "We appreciate the opportunity for our members to hear about the role and mandate of the Taxpayers' Ombudsman, and his vision for the next five years."

During his visit to Sudbury, Mr. Dubé also toured the CRA's Sudbury Tax Services Office where he participated in a roundtable discussion with a number of CRA employees.
