The Voice of Canada’s Investment Funds Industry


Tax policy, as it applies both to investment funds and individual investors, is an important area of IFIC comment and advice.

IFIC works with its members to develop positions on tax policy and technical issues for submission to federal and provincial governments in Canada. We serve as a resource for tax officials seeking to better understand the impact on the fund industry and investors of specific tax proposals.
