My mum is a citizen of Emirates and has worked there for a long time. She is a teacher there. I live in Canada with my dad(currently unemployed) and go to school in Alberta. Both my parents obtained residency in Canada in 2012 and my dad has paid taxes since then. My mum has come to canada in 2014 after leaving work in Emirates.
She does not have a job yet and is busy studying. She has transferred 9000CAD to our bank here so that we can afford to pay our rent and other expenses. My mum has earned the money in Emirates.
So I would like to know if she has to pay taxes on the money she has brought in to Canada from Emirates to support us. I know some countries have a double tax agreement contract. How can I learn more about what to do so that I can better understand my mums situation and what we can do.
Also will my mum be in any trouble?
Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you
