A new Fraser Institute study out today has some grim news for Canadian families.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and shutdowns driving down tax revenues collected by governments across Canada, the average Canadian family still spent over 36% of its income on taxes in 2020.
That's more than housing, food and clothing costs – combined.
In fact, since 1961, the average Canadian family’s total tax bill has increased nominally by 1,992%.
