Taxation des Ressources Naturelles et Rentes Hydroelectriques au Canada


  • Bernard, J-T.


Economic rent is defined as the portion of revenue earned by a factor of production in excess of its opportunity cost. In the nature of a surplus, the economic rent of natural resources presents interesting characteristics with respect to taxation. However, taxation mechanisms applied to Canadian natural resources have seldom reflected particular concerns over the capture of rent. This is specially the case for hydro-electric resources. La rente économique est définie comme le surplus de revenu d’un facteur de production par rapport à son coût d’opportunité. En tant que surplus, la rente économique des ressources naturelles présente des caractéristiques attrayantes pour fins fiscales. Les mécanismes de taxation appliqués aux ressources naturelles canadiennes ont rarement reflété une préoccupation à l’égard de la capture de la rente. C’est le cas notamment des ressources hydro-électriques.
