This study finds that ad-hoc tax changes over the last two decades have seriously weakened the redistributive role of Canada’s tax system at a time when market inequalities call for more, not less, redistribution. The authors present a framework for a progressive tax reform strategy and recommend the establishment of a Fair Tax Commission to examine how federal taxes and transfers work together as a system and make recommendations for changes.
