About this campaign

Tax the Rich campaign Canadians for Tax Fairness

Currently, the super-rich pay a smaller proportion of their income and wealth in taxes than the rest of us, while the richest 1% of the population controls 25% of Canada's wealth.

Nine out of ten Canadians, across Party lines, support our calls for a wealth tax on the richest Canadians, and increasing the tax rate on the highest incomes.

We also advocate for closing tax loopholes that only benefit the super-rich, and policies like a minimum effective income tax rate, an inheritance tax on high-wealth estates, and a meaningful luxury goods tax.
