FAQ - Canada - Public Remunerations

Published on October 21, 2014

Public Remunerations.


1 - I am employed and paid by the French Government and working in Canada. Where do I pay income taxes?

Article 19 of the French-Canadian income tax treaty provides that compensations (other then pensions) paid by a contracting State to an individual, who is a citizen of this Contracting State for services rendered to this State, are only taxable in this Contracting State.

Pursuant to these provisions, a French citizen working for the French Government in Canada, does not pay federal income tax in Canada on the public remuneration he receives from France.

A French citizen who is a Canadian resident for the purpose of the treaty, must report all of his French source income, that are not covered by article 19, to Canada (real estate income, interest, dividends...)

A Canadian citizen working for the French Government in Canada, is taxable only in Canada on the public remuneration he receives from France.
