The Ambassador of Canada to the Secretary General for Foreign Affairs of Finland
Helsinki, November 1, 1983
I have the honour to refer to the Treaty between Canada and Finland concerning Extradition, signed at Helsinki on June 21, 1978 and to subsequent discussions between representatives of our two governments concerning an amendment of the Treaty.
Further to those discussions I now have the honour to propose that the Treaty be amended by adding to the Schedule of Offences a number 29.1 which shall read as follows:
"29.1 Offences against the laws relating to income tax evasion."
If this proposal meets with the approval of your government, I have the further honour to propose that this Note, which is authentic in English and in French, and your reply shall constitute an amendment to the Treaty on Extradition between Canada and Finland referred to above, which shall come into force on the date of entry into force of the said Treaty and which shall be considered an integral part of the said Treaty.
Accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
