This year Tax Freedom Day falls on June 14. Tax Freedom Day measures the total yearly tax burden imposed on Canadian families by all levels of government: If you had to pay all your taxes up front, you’d give government every dollar you earned before June 14. This year, the average Canadian family (with two or more people) will pay $52,675 in total taxes, or 44.7 per cent of its annual income.
