Total Government Revenues as Share of National GDP (2000)


TAX FACT

Total taxes in Canada account for 41.8 percent of our total Gross Domestic Product. That's slightly below the average for all the industrialized countries which belong to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Contrary to right-wing claims that we are "overtaxed," our taxes are below average - and so are our social programs.
