The panelists will refer to the reasons given by the Supreme Court in the two decisions in examining, among others, the following questions:

  • Is the Juliar decision dead?
  • To what extent can a contract be rectified in order to avoid unintended tax consequences?
  • Does a remedy exist which allows corrections to be brought to a written contract where the latter does not reflect the intention of the parties that there be no immediate tax consequences?
  • If such a remedy exists, does it allow for the insertion of new transactions?
  • Is the answer to this question the same in Québec as it is in the other provinces?

Dominic Belley, Norton Rose Fulbright (Counsel for Groupe Jean Coutu (PJC) Inc.)
Paul Jr. Bergeron, Agence du revenu du Québec
