Immigration and CRA

Does the immigration share one's personal information with other government department like CRA, and vice versa?

Not unless they have your permission to do so.

For example, when renewing your PR Card, you are asked to give your permission for IRCC to contact CRA.

Does in any case the Immigration will want to see my CRA account when processing the PR Application?

I appreciate your response to my questions.

Do you live in Canada yet? If not, I can't see how CRA would get involved. (There would be nothing IRCC could ask CRA about.)

Now, if you already live in Canada, and are on a work permit, I guess there's potential they could ask your permission to contact CRA to confirm you were paying taxes while you worked here, but I'm not actually sure if that's a normal question. I don't believe it is, to the best of my knowledge.
