The Minister of National Revenue (French: Ministre du Revenu national) is the minister of the Crown in the Canadian Cabinet who is responsible for the Canada Revenue Agency, as well as the administration of taxation law and collection.

The current Minister of National Revenue is Diane Lebouthillier, who took office in November 2015 following the 2015 federal election.

History[edit]

The Minister of National Revenue position was created on March 31, 1927, when the office of Minister of Customs and Excise was abolished. The new National Revenue department was established by expanding the former Department of Customs and Excise with a new facility for the collection of income tax, which had formerly been the responsibility of the Finance Department.

The Department became known as Revenue Canada during the 1970s, and subsequently became the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency in 1999.[6] In 2003, the Department was split into the Canada Revenue Agency and the Canada Border Services Agency, the latter becoming the responsibility of the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness.

Minister of Inland Revenue[edit]

The Minister of Inland Revenue was a portfolio in the Canadian Cabinet established in 1867.

Between 1892 and 1897, during the 7th Canadian Parliament, the portfolio was considered to be only of the ministry, not of the Cabinet, and was thus referred to as the Controller of Inland Revenue during that time.[7][8] (The 'Minister of Inland Revenue' title returned after 1897 and remained until the office was formally abolished.) In 1918, the portfolio became the Minister of Customs and Inland Revenue.[8] It was subsequently turned into the Minister of National Revenue in 1927, whereupon the Department of Inland Revenue became the Department of National Revenue—later renamed Revenue Canada and now referred to as Canada Revenue Agency.

Minister of Customs and Inland Revenue[edit]

The Minister of Customs and Inland Revenue was a Minister of the Crown in the Canadian Cabinet responsible for the collection of taxes and duties.

The office was created in 1918 by combining the former positions of Minister of Inland Revenue and Minister of Customs. In 1921, the Minister of Customs and Inland Revenue office was replaced by the Minister of Customs and Excise by Statute 11-12 Geo. V, c. 26, which assented to on 4 June 1921. In 1927, the Department of Customs and Excise was abolished and replaced by the Department of National Revenue, thus the portfolio became the Minister of National Revenue.
