Fiscal and Economic Policy

The goal of the Fiscal and Economic Policy  area is to evaluate the fiscal and regulatory policies of the federal, provincial and municipal governments and propose alternative policies that improve the lives of Canadians. The research programs cover a wide range of issues including taxation, income inequality, public sector deficits and debt, productivity, financial market regulation, livable cities and economic diversification. Fiscal and Economic Policy provides evidence-based policy analysis and advice to governments, the business sector and the general public on how policies can be reformed to meet the challenges that we face today and in the future.
