On May 28, 2018, the Finance Minister Bill Morneau tabled a Notice of Ways and Means Motion in the House of Commons formalizing the Government's intention to introduce legislation that would enact the "Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting", also known as the Multilateral Instrument or MLI, into Canadian law.

To ensure that all Canadians pay their fair share of taxes, and to safeguard the Government's ability to invest in the programs and services that help the middle class and people working hard to join it, the Government of Canada is taking the next step in the fight against aggressive international tax avoidance.
