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