Laurel Amalia

It is with sadness that we share the passing of Laurel Amalia on June 4. Laurel served as the managing editor of the Canadian Tax Foundation from 1979-2006, overseeing the publication of the Foundation’s books, conference proceedings, newsletters, and the Canadian Tax Journal. In establishing and carrying on an editorial program that produced tax and public finance publications of the highest quality, she made an important contribution to the development of tax writing in Canada. Renowned for her exacting standards, Laurel’s direct manner, frank speech, and dry humour will live on in the memory of many Foundation authors and editors. Those with whom she worked remember her fondly. In recognition of her work at the Foundation Laurel was awarded a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal in 2012.

In lieu of flowers, donations in her name can be made to the Stephen Lewis Foundation
