Extreme wealth has skyrocketed in Canada and the rest of the world during the COVID-19 pandemic. The world's 10 richest men have doubled their fortunes, while the incomes of 99% of humanity are worse off. Canadian billionaires alone increased their wealth by roughly $111 billion during the pandemic.  

There is a solution.  In one small step – by creating a 1% national annual wealth tax on the richest Canadians – our finance minister could ensure the richest Canadians pay their fair share and raise up to $20 billion a year to invest in urgently-needed public measures, like universal childcare, mental health and income supports, climate action and affordable housing.  

Let the Minister know that you strongly support building a more equal economy that benefits women and Indigenous, Black and racialized communities – the ones hardest hit by rising inequality.  

Sign now to call on Minister Freeland to fulfil the government's public commitment to tax extreme wealth inequality by adopting a permanent wealth tax.
