Who We Are


Members of the Stop The Trades Tax campaign employ over 200,000 skilled tradespeople across Ontario and represent over 8,700 small, medium and large businesses.

The Stop The Trades Tax campaign began in September 2011 as a grassroots effort, with the goal to stop the Liberal government’s job-killing trades tax. A tax that will cost Ontario tradespeople and businesses millions and millions of dollars and make life more expensive for all Ontarians.

The more organizations and people who join our campaign, the more difficult it will be for the Ontario government to ignore our call for this costly tax to be scrapped. Please join our campaign to Stop The Trades Tax and save Ontario jobs.
