The Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association of Canada and the Canadian Camping and RV Council have joined to lobby the Federal Government to address and resolve concerns regarding the tax interpretation/policy changes by Canada Revenue Agency last year which could potentially impact campgrounds that employ less than five full time employees year-round.
CCRVC has received tremendous support from a number of opposition MPs. The following have been empathetic and have met with CCRVC or raised the issue publicly at the House of Commons:
• Dan Albas (Kelowna)
• Blake Richards (Banff-Calgary)
• Ziad Aboultaif (Edmonton)
• Cheryl Gallant (Nipissing)
• Jamie Schmale (Haliburton)
