McGill Institute for the Study of Canada


Feedback is an instrumental part of any learning process, as much for instructors as for students. It allows course lecturers to determine ways in which to improve their teaching, and for units such as ours to determine how to tailor our programs. For that reason, we highly encourage students to complete the MERCURY course evaluations, which is available to students until December 23rd. 


For our 2018 conference, the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada turns its focus to a topic that has plenty of history in Canada: tax fairness.

It’s no surprise that taxes are in the headlines today: tensions around tax fairness have always provoked political engagement and lively protest. Such tensions account for some of our nation’s best and worst moments of social solidarity and mutual hostility.
