If you're in Montreal today: a Canadian tax justice roundtable

From Canadians for Tax Fairness:
"Canadians for Tax Fairness and McGill University Law School are co-hosting a Public Round Table on Tax Justice and our first Tax Justice Research Symposium.  The public Round Table takes place at McGill University Faculty of Law, Chancellor Day Hall - 3644 Peel Street, Montreal on Wednesday, May 29 at 7:30pm, Montreal time. It will also be a live webcast. So follow this link to find out more.

The panellists include some of the most passionate and informed tax justice advocates in the world. Canadians for Tax Fairness President Diana Gibson will be joined by James Henry, the Chair of the Global Alliance for Tax Justice; John Christensen from UK’s Tax Justice Network; and Frédéric Zalac, from the CBC and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.

The following day, our Tax Justice Research Symposium brings together academic researchers, investigative journalists and campaigners to identify key research needed for effective campaigning on tax justice issues.   Topics include:
  • Making corporations pay their fair share of taxes
  • Provincial and municipal fiscal challenges and solutions
  • Closing tax loopholes and tackling tax evasion.
Canadians for Tax Fairness is excited to be bringing these committed and creative people together.  It is one way we are working to build collaborative networks of researchers and campaigners who are committed to working for tax fairness.  But there is so much more to do. You can help support our work here."
Canadian Money Offshore

Canadians for Tax Fairness recently used Statistics Canada data to calculate that ultra-wealthy Canadians and large corporations now have $170 billion parked offshore – an all-time high.  Much of it is untracked and untaxed, resulting in billions of lost revenues.
