Royal Commission of Inquiry on Constitutional Problems

Premier of Quebec, Maurice Duplessis, called for the Royal Commission of Inquiry on Constitutional Problems in 1953. The commission, chaired by Mr. Justice Thomas Tremblay, studied the problem of tax sharing between different levels of government and greater constitutional problems in Canada.

The commission published a five-volume report in 1956. It proposed a maximum level of taxation be established, the provincial responsibility for unemployment, and a shared personal and corporate tax scheme between the federal and provincial governments.
