William Lyon Mackenzie King, Canada’s 10th Prime Minister, used to say “Today’s promises are tomorrow’s taxes”. A more up-to-date version would be “Today’s deficits are tomorrow’s taxes.” Alberta’s governments began running deficits in 2008-09 and the NDP government only plans to balance the provincial budget in five years’ time. By then, Alberta’s public debt will have risen to about 90 billion with annual interest payments of .8 billion in 2023-24.1 Who will pay the taxes to pay the interes...

Canada could be about to lose its tax competitive advantage it currently enjoys in attracting investment to its oil sector: its low corporate tax and royalty rates compared to the U.S. While we will start to know better the details of a U.S. tax reform package in the next month or so, two reform plans provide a basis to analyze potential impacts: the tax-reform “Blueprint” put forward last year by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, and President Donald Trump’s own reform proposa...

Alberta’s new royalty regime has made the province a more rewarding place for anyone looking to invest in conventional non-renewable resources. After Alberta’s NDP government commissioned a review of the royalty regime to ensure the province was receiving its “fair share,” it ended up determining that revenue-neutral changes were warranted to the royalty system for conventional oil, with oilsands largely left untouched. However, the few changes that were made have had a substantial impact on inc...

The discovery in 2012 of a significant natural gas reservoir in the Romanian offshore sector of the Black Sea, followed by other encouraging findings, offers an opportunity for the Romanian government to update the fiscal legislation concerning taxation and royalties for oil and gas activities in order to attract more investment in this vital sector. This study analyses the opportunity of replacing the current revenue-based royalties that apply to all types of oil and gas projects with a resourc...

Who pays and how much? These are crucial questions for any tax system and, given the complexity of the economy, they are also among the most difficult to answer. This paper undertakes an analysis of the distribution of taxes and transfers in Canada using a static approach based on annual income combined with the novel approach of breaking down taxpayers by age cohort. The paper examines how tax rates net of transfers differ by age and income group, and how those rates change over taxpayers’ life...

Until now, assessments of the scope of enterprises in Canada that are owned by government have placed Canada roughly in the middle of OECD member countries in terms of how much direct control governments have over businesses in our economy. But that’s because all of those assessments have relied almost strictly on counting federal Crown corporations. For the first time, this study takes into account businesses owned by lower levels of governments. And once they are accounted for, it becomes clea...

This paper examines the nature and structure of the Canadian oil export market in the context of world prices for heavy crude oil and the potential price differential available to Canadian producers gaining access to new overseas markets. Success in this arena will allow Canada to reap incredible economic benefits. For example, the near term benefits for increased access to Gulf Coast markets after mid-continent bottlenecks are removed, are significant, representing nearly 10$ US per barrel for ...
