Funding the Canadian City
Funding the Canadian City, published by the Canadian Tax Foundation and Institute on Municipal Finance and Governance, is a collection of papers by leading experts, scholars, and policy makers in the field of municipal taxation and finance.
The book – edited by Enid Slack, Lisa Philipps, Lindsay M. Tedds, and Heather L. Evans – includes timely research on property taxes, the options for new revenue tools for cities, road tolling and congestion pricing, foreign-buyer taxes and vacancy taxes, and the effects of the sharing economy on municipal revenues.
Through various lenses, the book explores two fundamental questions for Canadian cities: How can they raise enough revenue to deliver high-quality public services and infrastructure? And how can they address their modern challenges in ways that create a competitive advantage to attract and retain businesses and residents?
You can purchase the book through the Canadian Tax Foundation.
