The Canadian Tax Journal, first published in 1953, is the flagship research publication of the Canadian Tax Foundation. Published quarterly, it is relied on by policy analysts, accountants, lawyers, economists, business persons, and politicians as a multidisciplinary resource for the analysis, application, and interpretation of tax law, economics, and public finance in Canada.

The main articles are peer reviewed by members of an editorial board made up of tax practitioners and university faculty members. Regular features of the journal include Current Cases, Personal Tax Planning, International Tax Planning, Selected US Tax Developments, Corporate Tax Planning, and Current Tax Reading.  The journal’s Policy Forum section comprises both submitted and commissioned articles that provide expert analysis of, and a range of perspectives on, current debates about tax and fiscal policy.
