Media Advisory - Personal Income Tax in Canada: Do Canadians take it for Granted?

CALGARY, April 14, 2015 /CNW/ - Personal income tax in Canada is now the single largest source of revenue for government and the most constant reminder to hard working Canadians of the growth of government and its cost. Should Canadians take this system for granted? Are they fair and progressive? Jack Mintz and The School of Public Policy, seek to answer those questions at a symposium that will take a hard look at income taxes and propose real options for reform.

This two-day symposium will feature many high profile speakers including:

  • Keynote speaker, Douglas Holtz-Eakin, President of American Action Forum, on U.S. Income Tax Reform
  • Jack Mintz, The School of Public Policy
  • Larry Chapman, Executive Director and CEO, Canadian Tax Foundation
  • Kim Moody, Director, Canadian Tax Advisory, Moodys Gartner Tax Law
  • Norma Nielson, Program Director, Financial Markets Regulation, The School of Public Policy
  • Sherri Torjman, Vice-President, Caledon Institute of Social Policy
