Citizens Research Institute of Canada


Citizens Research Institute of Canada, established in Toronto in 1919, grew out of the organization in 1914 of the Toronto Bureau of Municipal Research. The results of this bureau's work were of such promise that a national body was formed for the purpose of rendering to municipalities throughout Canada, to government departments, and to public institutions, such services as had been rendered to Toronto. A national board was set up and local committees were established in many of the largest cities. The work of the institute has consisted in supplying a statistical service, in making researches into taxation and administration, and in conducting administrative surveys. It has held a number of widely-attended conferences on tax problems, and it publishes frequent Bulletins.
