Nicolas Simard, a lawyer in the tax practice at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP in Montreal, said the Panama documents are likely to lead to more tax audits targeting wealthy Canadians.


“Previous leaks of offshore activities have led the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to engage in multiple tax audits targeting wealthy Canadians,” including clients of an international accounting firm, Simard wrote in an online article Monday. “This time should be no different.”
