His expertise in tax and labour market issues, and his focus on human capital – including the economics of children and the elderly – will be a valuable asset to the Institute,” said William Robson, President and CEO of the C.D. Howe Institute.
The C. D. Howe Institute is an independent not-for-profit Canadian research institute whose mission is to raise living standards by fostering economically sound public policies. It is a source of essential policy intelligence, distinguished by research that is nonpartisan, evidence-based and subject to definitive expert review.

He is the recipient of numerous awards, including a UBC Killam Research Prize, the Doug Purvis Memorial Prize for research on Canadian public policy, the Harry Johnson Prize for best article in the Canadian Journal of Economics, and the Kendrick Prize for best article in the Review of Income and Wealth.
In addition to his appointment as Fellow-in-Residence, Dr. Milligan will also serve as an academic advisor to the C.D. Howe Institute’s Fiscal and Tax Competitiveness program.
