FEBRUARY 8 - 9, 2019
Law Society of Ontario
130 Queen Street West | Toronto
This symposium is inspired by the scholarship of the late Tim Edgar and the present turbulence of circumstances that affect taxation. Tim was a distinguished member of the Canadian tax academy and taught in Canada and Australia. He passed away in 2016, at the peak of his career. In his tax scholarship, Tim tackled some of the most challenging issues in tax law and policy. This symposium brings together leading tax scholars in multiple disciplines and tax practitioners in Canada and Australia. Participants will explore fundamental questions, such as: Can progressive personal income tax continue in the 21st century? Must tax law be a hostage of private law constructions? What is the evolving connection between technology and taxation? To what end, the BEPS project?
Students, researchers, young practitioners and policymakers are particularly welcome.
The program is designed to stimulate lively exchange of ideas and inter-disciplinary and inter-generational dialogues.
