After exploding to record levels under Stephen Harper's Conservative government, the amount of money Corporate Canada is funneling through offshore tax havens has hit a new all-time high.

According to data newly released by Statistics Canada, Canadian corporations held a staggering $353 billion in 12 of the world's biggest tax haven destinations in 2018.

At the top of the list, Canadian corporations reported holding $90 billion in the tiny European nation of Luxembourg alone — that's up $8.4 billion since 2017.

Luxembourg is followed by Barbados ($65 billion), Bermuda ($47 billion) and the Cayman Islands ($40 billion), Statistics Canada's data on Canadian direct investment abroad reveals.
