This course surveys most aspects of the taxation of the individual: the appropriate tax unit and structure of tax rates; the concept of residency; employment, property and business income; expenses and credits; capital gains and losses; tax expenditures; and tax avoidance.

While the course involves technical tax law and in particular the interpretation of the Income Tax Act and related case law, there is a significant tax policy element to the course.
