The agreement with San Marino was signed on October 27, 2010, and the agreement with Anguilla, under Entrustment from the British government was signed on October 28, 2010.

Welcoming the agreements in a statement on November 17, the Canadian Minister for Finance, Jim Flaherty, said: “These agreements will help Canadian tax authorities combat international tax evasion. The signature of 11 TIEAs so far demonstrates Canada’s unwavering resolve to uphold its international commitment to the implementation of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development standard for the exchange of tax information.”

Canada has now signed TIEAs with Anguilla, Bahamas, Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Dominica, the Netherlands Antilles, Saint Lucia, San Marino, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
