Treading Water: The Impact of High METRs on Working Families in Canada
AbstractWorking families with children in Canada face high tax hurdles that could dissuade them from earning extra income, according to a report released today by the C.D. Howe Institute. In “Treading Water: The Impact of High METRs on Working Families in Canada,” authors Alexandre Laurin and Finn Poschmann find low-to- mid-income Canadians face taxes on incremental income generally higher than those faced by high-income families.
