On October 5, 2018, Michael Smith, Deloitte tax partner and Leader, National Tax Office delivered a presentation to the House of Commons Finance Committee on the topic of Canada’s global competitiveness with a focus on tax policy. He was joined by Craig Alexander, Deloitte’s Chief Economist.

A Q&A followed Michael’s presentation where he and Craig answered questions from Members of Parliament, offering insights on a broad range of topics—everything from the challenges to Canada’s productivity, attracting top talent, innovation, and competitiveness and business attractiveness.

The consultations are held each year by the bi-partisan Finance Committee in order to develop recommendations to the Finance Minister regarding the following year’s budget. Deloitte was one of the organizations invited to present in person during the Toronto stop of the committee’s cross-country consultations.
