Providing a Competitive Tax & Investment Régime

While vital to job creation, economic growth, and our standard of living, investing in entrepreneurs and innovation is inherently a risky business. While some investments translate into tremendous success stories (e.g., Shopify, Lightspeed, Bestar, and Cieslok Media) other investments fail to materialize and never return the original capital invested.

Therefore, to continue to attract private investment into Canadian entrepreneurial ventures and innovation ecosystem, Canada must maintain a strong, competitive tax and investment régime. Specifically, the federal government must maintain competitive capital gains and corporate taxes to encourage investors to allocated capital to this higher risk asset class.
