CRA Roundtable Member Advisories

Each May, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Roundtables are held, bringing together a number of CRA personnel and representatives from the CPA profession. During the session, two concurrent roundtable sessions are held, one focusing on GST issues and the other on income tax matters. The questions and answers arising from the Roundtables are compiled after the event, in order to share the discussion and information more broadly.

The next Roundtable will be held next May in Red Deer.

Note: No CRA Roundtable was held in 2018.

Note: Readers are reminded that these publications reflect the views of the CRA at the time of the roundtables and the release of the related written answers. As the underlying legislation and/or the interpretation of the issues by the CRA may have changed since the time of the responses, readers are urged to review any developments which may have occurred since publication.

Roundtables and advisories prior to 2014 were posted by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Alberta.

If you have any questions about the Roundtables, contact CPA Alberta’s Director of Member Engagement and Technical Advisory Randy Nicholls CPA, CA at or call 403.299.1309
