The Canadian Trucking Alliance announced a new campaign to increase awareness about the damaging impact from the ongoing inaction on T4A enforcement by the federal government– specifically the ongoing moratorium – for Canadian trucking industry, workers, and the broader economy.

The T4A moratorium and a lack of enforcement has allowed an underground economy to thrive, causing significant losses in tax revenue and jeopardizing the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of hard-working truck-drivers.

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is currently surveying businesses and organizations to assess their readiness to comply with the reporting fees for service (RFS) requirement. The RFS mandates that payments for services exceeding $500 in a calendar year be reported to the CRA using a T4A slip. However, due to a moratorium on penalties for non-compliance that has been in place since 2010, many businesses have ignored this requirement, resulting in rampant tax evasion and unfair competition within the trucking sector.

Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau and the CRA are contributing to conditions for an underground economy to thrive due to inaction. This negligence is costing Canadians billions in lost tax revenue, which means less funding for essential services like healthcare, infrastructure, and education. It’s time for the CRA to enforce T4A compliance and put an end to this abuse.

Supporters can take action by visiting to learn more and voice their concerns. We encourage you to fill out the CRA survey, as this is a critical step toward holding bad actors accountable and ensuring a level playing field for all trucking companies.

CTA is also encouraging all supporters to share our campaign messaging widely on their social media platforms by tagging @CanRevAgency and @mclaudebibeau. All social media graphics and accompanying text can accessed and downloaded from our campaign toolkit, here.

“For over a decade, the CRA’s moratorium on T4A enforcement has allowed personal service businesses to proliferate, harming compliant businesses and workers alike,” said President Stephen Laskowski from the Canadian Trucking Alliance. “We urge all members of the trucking community to participate in the survey and make their voices heard.”
