Major developments

  • As a result of a public referendum in British Columbia, the 12 per cent HST was discarded on April 1, 2013, and the 7 per cent Provincial Sales Tax (PST) was resurrected, accompanied by the 5 per cent GST.
  • Prince Edward Island introduced harmonization at a rate of 14 per cent on April 1, 2013.
  • In 2012, Quebec announced it was going to harmonize with the federal system on January 1, 2013. However, Quebec is not an HST province but it did harmonize the QST rules so they are similar to the GST and HST rules.
  • Nova Scotia was expected to reduce its current 1 per cent HST rate over a two-year period commencing July 1, 2014 but the province announced, in its 2014 Budget, that it was not going to proceed with the HST rate reduction.
