A Sales Tax for Alberta

Why and How

Alberta is the only Canadian province without a sales tax, and lawmakers have all but ignored this potential stimulus for an increasingly strained local economy. In A Sales Tax for Alberta, regional and national policy experts map out how and why a provincial sales tax should be implemented. Drawing on legal, historical, and sociological analysis, the authors build a strong case for the unique effectiveness of a sales tax compared with other revenue sources. An influx of funds, this book argues, could drive widespread improvements in the region—from long-term fiscal stability to a renewed confidence in democracy itself.
