Non Resident Contractors 
If a Contractor is a non-resident of Canada (including, an individual, sole proprietor, organization, corporation or partnership) supplying services within Canada, the University is required to withhold fifteen percent (15%) of the payment(s) pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada) unless the Contractor has obtained and provided to the University, prior to the payment being issued, a CRA Waiver indicating that the University is not required to withhold tax on behalf of the Contractor.
