The Voice of Canada’s Investment Funds Industry


IFIC is a resource for tax officials seeking to better understand the impact of specific tax proposals on the funds industry and investors.

IFIC believes that tax policy should not provide one financial product with an advantage over another. For example, mutual funds carry a higher level of GST/HST than other financial products. And because the tax is passed on to the investor it is a tax on savings – one that we are working to have reduced.
