External Activity: Taxation of Capital Gains: Reforms and Observations

Organized by the Chaire en fiscalité et finances publiques


In recent decades, both Canada and Australia have lowered capital gains taxation.

As a first step, this lunchtime conference discussed the impacts of the reform of the capital gains tax rate in Australia and its effects on tax revenues. Is it possible that lower taxes on capital gains generate an increase in tax revenues? This was followed by a presentation on the history of tax treatment in the Canadian context.
