Canada Revenue Agency to Eliminate 600 Jobs in Capital Region

Canada Revenue Agency expects to eliminate 600 jobs in the nation's capital as the tax agency implements the Conservative's latest budget cuts to save $60.6 million on internal operations by 2015. The first wave of the cuts were announced this week, hitting more than 300 positions at headquarters or at Ontario regional operations in Ottawa, and employees are braced for another round by the fall. There are about 10,000 CRA employees in 29 locations across the National Capital Region. Most of the cuts will be at headquarters but putting the international tax office and the tax service office under single management will also eliminate jobs, including some 23 executive positions. The next round of cuts is expected to come from reorganizing several branches, savings in overhead and consolidating internal support services. In a notice to employees, CRA Commissioner Andrew Treusch announced he expected 70% of the reductions could be managed by attrition, noting that between 500 to 600 employees in the NCR leave or retire every year.
