“Canada’s tax system is not delivering for Canadians. Outdated and overly complex, it is hurting the country’s competitiveness, business growth and innovation, and it is costing individual Canadians money.

Through research and real case studies from tax professionals, Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) knows how Canadian businesses and individuals are suffering with our tax system.
