Our History

Canadians for Tax Fairness is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organization advocating for fair and progressive tax policies aimed at building a strong and sustainable economy, reducing inequalities and funding quality public services.

C4TF was founded in 2011 by a broad coalition of economists, researchers and social justice advocates drawn from civil society groups. They represented faith, labour, international development and community organizations, as well as academia and law. These individuals were united by a shared desire to steer Canadian tax policy back to what matters: addressing social, economic and environmental challenges.

Over the years, C4TF has earned a reputation as a credible voice on taxation. Our opinion and analysis have been regularly sought by media, government and international tax justice advocates.

Internationally, C4TF is a lead member of the Tax Justice Network and the Global Alliance for Tax Justice.
