View this page in: Français

This survey collected data from 80 of Canada’s largest businesses, representing a range of industry sectors for the fiscal year 2013. Results show that the 80 participating CEO Council members are significant taxpayers, responsible for nearly 20% of all federal corporate tax revenue. In fact, the three levels of government together are the biggest beneficiary of payments from participating members (39.9%).

Beyond tax, the survey collects data about total employment numbers, compensation and the cost of tax compliance. Tax compliance costs remain a burden to businesses. The survey identified 68 types of taxes and other payments contributed to the three levels of government.
