Global Lessons in Urban Diversity, Revitalization and Growth

In an increasingly globalized era, cities face a series of interconnected challenges related to growth. Growth brings diversity and increasing complexity as neighbourhoods and public spaces ebb and flow with the passing of generations, the influx of newcomers, and the differing interpretations of what a city could and should be.

As Calgary continues to grow, it is important to learn from the experiences of older and larger cities, to better understand the possibilities and pitfalls they have experienced as we chart our own course. For this we look to one of the oldest and largest cities in the Americas – Mexico City.

Join The School of Public Policy and the Latin American Research Centre for a discussion on issues related to urban diversity, revitalization and growth, as panelists compare and contrast their experiences in Calgary, Mexico City and beyond.

Trade and Taxes: How Good Tax Policy Smooths the Way for Increased International Trade

The School of Public Policy is pleased to host Scott Wilkie, Partner, Blakes, Cassels & Graydon LPP for a special two-hour tax policy seminar on Wednesday, June 22nd.

The seminar will explore the intersections of international tax and trade policy, particularly in relation to the origins and development of tax treaties and countries’ domestic tax rules to recognize tax rights with a view to limiting impediments to international trade. The seminar will consider the origins of the Model Tax Convention of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, the relationship between trade treaties and tax treaties, the effects of multi-jurisdictional activity of multinational enterprises on the adequacy of tax policy responses to avoid “double taxation” without encouraging “double non-taxation” as well as the connotations of those terms in the international tax environment.

We invite tax professionals to join us for this session. There is no cost to attend, however registration is required and seats are limited.
