Notes From Joyce

It’s time to tackle income inequality in Canada

Posted on April 25, 2012

Income inequality has increased dramatically in Canada over the past 20 years.

Today in the House of Commons I seconded a motion by Scott Brison, Liberal Member for Kings-Hants, calling on the government to undertake an urgent a study of income inequality in Canada.

Please see the text of Scott’s motion below.

M-315 — February 13, 2012 — Mr. Brison (Kings—Hants) — That the Standing Committee on Finance be instructed to undertake a study on income inequality in Canada and that this study include, but not be limited to, (i) a review of Canada’s federal and provincial systems of personal income taxation and income supports, (ii) an examination of best practices that reduce income inequality and improve GDP per capita, (iii) the identification of any significant gaps in the federal system of taxation and income support that contribute to income inequality, as well as any significant disincentives to paid work in the formal economy that may exist as part of a “welfare trap”, (iv) recommendations on how best to improve the equality of opportunity and prosperity for all Canadians; and that the Committee report its findings to the House within one year of the adoption of this motion.
