The CPP Payroll Tax Hike: Macroeconomic Transition Costs and Alternatives
AbstractIn 1997 the federal government introduced major changes to the Canadian Pension Plan (CPP).

This study uses the FOCUS model of the Canadian economy to examine the macroeconomic impacts of these premium increases and to investigate some alternatives.
