2010/11 Premier’s Awards Provincial Finalist Category: Legacy Ian Forman worked tirelessly to challenge and improve the way the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) serves the provinces with the collection of provincial income taxes. Besides improved relationships and reporting with many provincial agencies, Ian’s efforts resulted in these revenues to the Province: • $100 million—Correct revenue allocation between provinces; • $200 million—Individuals correctly declaring their province of residency; • $200 million—Tax avoidance and aggressive tax planning schemes. For 12 of his 30 years of public service, Ian was a leader nationally in work that influenced the transformation of the culture and focus of the CRA to an agency sensitive and responsive to provincial concerns and issues. He strove to develop transparent accountability for the work the CRA undertakes on behalf of the province and to ensure provincial revenue is appropriately protected.
