Canadians for Tax Fairness (C4TF) is the premiere source on matters of tax fairness for journalists, researchers, policy-makers and Canadian citizens, who trust us to provide well-researched analyses, a voice for middle-class and working-class Canadians, and a counter-weight to the well-funded tax-related advocacy groups and lobbyists whose primary objective is to protect established wealth.
