How much in taxes, both hidden and visible, did the average Canadian pay in 2015?

I wanted to share the findings of a recent report from the Fraser Institute regarding the amount of hidden taxes paid by Canadians. The Fraser Institute is a Canadian independent non-partisan research organization which operates as a think-tank focused on Canadian economic/educational issues and trends. Their latest report shows that on average, 42% of the average Canadian cash income goes towards visible and “hidden” tax. This marks a unique time in Canadian history where the average citizen is paying more in taxes than on daily expenses, such as food, clothing or property.
