Wednesday, December 13, 2023
The Standing Senate Committee on National Finance has the honour to table its
Your committee, which was authorized to examine the the subject matter of Bill C-56, An Act to amend the Excise Tax Act and the Competition Act, has, in obedience to the order of reference of Tuesday, December 12, 2023, examined the said subject-matter and now reports as follows:
Your committee supports the measures included in Bill C-56 regarding the enhancement to the goods and services tax rebate for new residential rental property and modifications to the Competition Act. However, it is contemptuous that your committee was afforded a very limited time to conduct its study of the bill. As a result, it was prevented from thoroughly studying the bill and properly performing its duties.
