Part of the OECD Base Erosion and Profit Shifting project is to stop treaty shopping.  Canada and with other countries has signed the multi-lateral instrument (MLI) which will modify almost all of Canada’s existing tax treaties, starting in 2019.  MIL was a Canadian treaty shopping case that the government lost in court – it is probably the reason Canada is looking at other ways of stopping what it perceives as inappropriate use of tax treaties.
