Perspectives of a Former Finance Minister
with Interviewer Robert Couzin

In May 2016, Osgoode Hall Law School, York University, and the Foundation held a symposium to present and discuss a collection of papers (to be published in September 2017) on the 100th anniversary of the Act. One of the highlights of that symposium was Robert Couzin’s interview with the Honourable Michael Wilson, PC, a former finance minister and a distinguished and respected Canadian. Michael Wilson’s perspective as finance minister during one of the country’s most significant periods of tax reform (which saw the 1987 income tax reform, the introduction of the general anti-avoidance rule, and the introduction of the goods and services tax) was illuminating and fascinating for the symposium attendees.

We are honoured and delighted that Michael Wilson and Robert Couzin have agreed to repeat the interview so that Foundation members can attend in person in Toronto or via Webcast.

6:00 pm -
8:00 pm


This presentation will be followed by a relaxed social gathering for both young and experienced tax practitioners.  Don’t miss this opportunity to connect or re-connect with your tax community!
