Nova Scotia Tax and Regulatory Review with Laurel Broten

The Provincial Government recently announced a review of our tax and regulation policies with the aim of improving our economic and business climate. Laurel Broten, a public policy expert and former senior cabinet minister in Ontario, is leading the Nova Scotia Tax and Regulatory Review: Charting a Path for Growth. As part of this process, Laurel and her team are seeking views and suggestions from business leaders on changes to the Province’s tax and regulation policies that will improve our economic and business climate. Digital Nova Scotia is inviting its members to attend a Tax and Regulatory Review session with Laurel Broten to provide industry-specific feedback.

The Nova Scotia tax system has been developed over many years. It has never been evaluated or updated in a comprehensive way. Digital Nova Scotia is supportive of a review, which seeks to improve the business ecosystem and boost the digital economy in Nova Scotia. With this review, Ms. Broten will consider best practices and examine tax arrangements and success stories in other jurisdictions. She will also consult with local, national and international experts, academics, business and sectorial groups, government departments, and other organizations and think tanks.
