Fiscal Arrangements Working Group (2012-2015)

The Fiscal Arrangements Working Group was established in January 2012.

The principles underlying the work of the working group are:

  • To find solutions that work for the benefit of all Canadians in all provinces and territories;
  • That every province and territory must be able to provide its citizens with reasonably comparable levels of public services at reasonably comparable levels of taxation;
  • That no jurisdiction should be made worse off; and
  • That Canada’s fiscal arrangements should be a win-win for all Canadians regardless of where they live.
