MONTREAL, March 22, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - In yesterday's budget, The
Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty announced the abolishment of the
International Banking Centres program.
Several people from the business community wrongly believed that this
decision would have an impact on the International Financial Centres
program. The management of the IFC Montreal wants to reassure the
finance community, particularly the financial corporations who benefit
from this program. There is not link between yesterday's announcement
and the tax credits which they benefit from under the International
Financial Centre (IFC) program. The IFC program is under the
administration of Quebec's Finance and Economy Ministry.
