Is there any estate tax implication for an inheritence for a Mexican citizen
who has permanent resident status in Canada?

david ingram replies:

There is no Canadian Tax on the inheritance received.

If the inheritance arose in Canada, any capital gains tax or tax on RRSP or
pension amounts are paid by the estate of the deceased person.

Canada does not have an inheritance or estate tax although we do have an
estate tax return.
