CBC News reports that two First Nations men from northern Manitoba are exempt from paying taxes on income earned from fishing. In the Court of Appeals, Revenue Canada argued the fishing income should be taxed because it was garnered off reserve. But the court upheld the original 2009 decision that said the
Norway House members were exempt even though the fish weren’t caught on reserve. Tax court Judge J.E. Hershfield said at that time “they fish in the lake because that’s where
the fish are.” Manitoba Grand Chief Derek Nepinak said the
March 21 announcement “is a great win for treaty fishermen.” The federal government has 30 days to file an appeal with the Supreme Court of Canada.
