Momentum Gaining on Agreement for Tax Reform

The final weekend of the 2019 federal election shows that the five major political parties in Canada share agreement that the tax system needs reform.

The Conservatives, Liberals, Bloc Quebecois and NDP focus on areas of tax reform. These range from adjusting marginal tax rates and simplifying federal-provincial tax compliance to promising reviews of certain classes of taxpayers and system reviews of types of tax preferences. The Green Party of Canada has committed to a comprehensive review of Canada’s tax system.
