AdWords taxable?

Does Google AdWords charge taxes on the advertising budget? (we're in Canada, Quebec) Someone told me we only have to charge taxes on the management services of the campains, not on the ad budget itself. I doubt it. Can't find any specific info anywhere, which is surprising. Anyone has a solid answer? Thanks!

From what you're saying, it sounds as though you're asking about taxes on your work. Taxing labor is controlled by the laws of the country where the activity takes place--you really need to check Canadian tax law for your answer.

I think you misread me. I specifically was talking about the "ad budget itself", the portion allocated to ad clicks. We do tax our services, we have to. Let's say a client has a 1500$ PPC budget on 3 months (billed by Google via credit card), 500$/month, and the campaign management is 600$. The 600 is of course taxable. But what about the 1500$ from Google?
