About our Events

The Canadian Tax Foundation is committed to enhancing the professional development of its members. The Foundation organizes and presents conferences and other events that provide a unique opportunity for tax specialists to develop their knowledge of particular aspects of the tax system and to increase their understanding of taxation in general. Conferences and other events are relevant to practitioners in all areas of tax practice – business, academic, and government, regional, national, or international.

National Conference

Each November, the Foundation holds its Annual Tax Conference. This event provides a forum for senior tax practitioners and senior government officials to share their experience and discuss their reactions to current tax issues and challenges. Three days of technical programs offer a combination of workshops, plenary and breakout sessions designed to bring the tax practitioner up to date on the latest developments.

Regional Conferences

In addition, the Foundation holds regional conferences in British Columbia, the Prairie Provinces, Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces. These one and two day events are dedicated to keeping tax practitioners informed on region-specific topics and issues.

Seminars and Other Events

The Foundation also organises, on an ad hoc basis, subject-specific seminars that focus on technical areas and major tax and public economics policy issues of immediate concern.

Webinars / Webcasts

Recorded video sessions from various conferences and events held by the Foundation are now available via webcast, for those unable to attend in person.

Young Practitioners

The Foundation supports the professional development needs of a thriving community of Young Practitioners. Learn more about the Young Practitioners Group.
