I'm not a Canadian citizen or resident. If I have a bank account in Canada, which I use to receive payments for a software product/service from people outside Canada, am I eligible to pay Canadian tax?

I come from a country, which is not widely supported by many payment gateways, so I'm exploring this option to receive payments.

I did stumble upon this quote from Canada Revenue Agency on this page:

As a non-resident of Canada, you pay tax on income you receive from sources in Canada. The type of tax you pay and the requirement to file an income tax return depend on the type of income you receive.

Any pointers greatly appreciated.

Update: This is not about tax evasion. The payment gateways in my country sucks, and are still using old XML SOAP APIs.
