Appointment to the Canada Revenue Board of Management
The Honourable Gordon O'Connor, Minister of National Revenue announced the
appointment of Mr. Norman Halldorson to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Board of
Management. Mr. Halldorson was nominated by the Province of Saskatchewan.
"Mr. Halldorson's wealth of experience as a chartered accountant,
particularly his years as a partner in the areas of taxation and client service
with KPMG Enterprise, will contribute to the Board's role within the Canada
Revenue Agency," said Minister O'Connor. "I am confident that Mr. Halldorson's
membership will be beneficial to the contributions of the Board to the CRA in
the years to come."
The Act to establish the CRA specifies the establishment of a Board of
Management. The Board comprises 15 members, including the Chair, the
Commissioner of the CRA, 11 directors nominated by the provinces and
territories, and two directors nominated by the federal government. All members
are appointed by the Governor in Council.
The Act requires that each director nominated by a province or a territory
must be selected by the Governor in Council from a list of nominees submitted by
the minister responsible for revenue administration in the province or the
territory, or by another minister that the province or the territory designates.
