Newsletters and Blogs

The Foundation publishes three newsletters:

Members receive all three newsletters as part of their membership and have access to the searchable archives on this website. (Canadian Tax Focus and Perspectives on Tax Law & Policy are available to both members and non-members.) Readers are welcome to directly express their views on articles through comment boxes.

In addition to the newsletters, the Foundation publishes the Executive Director’s monthly message and the Arnold Report, which is available only to members.

Perspectives on Tax Law & Policy, a quarterly newsletter, provides a variety of perspectives on important policy-related issues in the tax system, with the goal of fostering informed, accessible commentary that bridges the gap between tax professionals, policy makers, and the general public. Each issue addresses a broad, compelling theme in taxation. A central article surveys the theme, with shorter articles commenting on selected aspects of the theme. This newsletter is also available in French as Perspectives en fiscalité et en politique fiscale.
