Media Advisory - In the Competition for Global Capital, Canada is losing its Edge: The School of Public Policy to Release Alarming New Report on Business Tax Reform

CALGARY, Nov. 24, 2016 /CNW/ - Canada is losing its edge in the competition for global capital. And that's a reversal of attend where Canada had become highly competitive internationally. Unfortunately, with provincial and federal governments raising taxes on business, this advantage is being erased. But by how much?  Where do other countries rank compared to us? What's the future for Canada when it comes to the competition for global capital?

With the election of Donald Trump and his promise to reduce corporate income tax rates, with UK Prime Minister May committing to reduce corporate income taxes to 17 per cent, there is pressure to lower, not raise corporate income taxes. How will Canada compete with these, our major trading partners?

On Monday, November 28th, The School of Public Policy with authors Jack Mintz and Philip Bazel will release the 2015 Tax-Competitiveness Report revealing tax rates among 92 countries, where Canada ranks and how we can keep our competitive advantage.

Media are invited to join co-author Jack Mintz at a media conference for the release of this annual update.
