The Path to Prosperity: Internationally Competitive Rates and a Level Playing Field
AbstractWhile Canadian federal and provincial governments have made progress in reducing the tax burden on business investment in recent years, the 2009 budget season also saw more counterproductive tax policies that favour certain industries and disadvantage others. In this Commentary, the authors assess the implications of these trends for Canada’s competitiveness as they update their annual survey of marginal effective tax rates in Canada and individual provinces.
