Canada’s New Escalator Tax on Alcohol Means Your Drink Prices Will Rise Even More, Every Year…. FOREVER!

Automatically increasing taxes on Spirits every year hurts hard working Canadians, Canadians who enjoy a social drink with friends and family, Canadians who make great whisky, Canadians who grow corn and rye, and Canadians who work in bars and restaurants.

Canada’s distillers (and their customers) already pay more than their fair share and are united in fighting higher automatic taxes, but we need your help.

SEE HOW YOU CAN JOIN THE FIGHT

The Facts

Canadians already pay amongst the highest alcohol taxes in the world.

The new automatic escalator tax is hidden from consumers and is undemocratic.

It increases automatically on April 1st every year — forever.

It was adopted without any consultation or analysis of its impact on consumers, bartenders & servers, whisky makers, or farmers.

At the same time as Canada increased taxes on alcohol, the United States cut theirs.

Canada’s tax and regulatory burdens now make our distillers uncompetitive internationally.

JUST SAY NO TO THE ESCALATOR TAX

Another new tax, but this one increases automatically, every year – forever!

Hidden and unfair, this new tax harms Canadian consumers, distillers, farmers, and bar & restaurant workers and owners across the country.

Hard working Canadians deserve fair taxation on their favourite drinks.
