These taxes are extensively referenced in both the text and the footnotes, providing insight into the legislation and administrative policy at both the federal and provincial levels. The format is designed to accommodate the harmonization of other jurisdictions in Canada — and it has served the book well over the past two decades.
The text reflects the law, regulations, government policy, and proposed amendments up to July 1, 2021, with a few exceptions related to changes pending prior to printing. It was written and edited by the tax professionals at Ryan, under the direction of Jim Day.
