Federal government looks to Deloitte for insights on competitiveness
Playing a key role in shaping the future.
The Future of Canada Centre (FCC) continues to be engaged in relevant and important conversations on issues that matter to our clients and Canadians across the country.
On October 5, Michael Smith, Leader of Deloitte’s 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, during which he and Craig answered questions from Members of Parliament, offering insights on a broad range of topics, including the challenges to Canada’s productivity, attracting top talent, innovation, and business competitiveness.
The consultations are held each year by the Finance Committee in order to develop recommendations for 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.
