After years of “mission creep” at Canada’s Crown financial corporations, their activities have expanded far beyond their original mandates and need reassessment, according to a new report from the C.D. Howe Institute. In “Reining in the Risks: Rethinking the Role of Crown Financial Corporations in Canada,” authors Philippe Bergevin and Finn Poschmann assess the risks posed by three major Crown financials for taxpayers and the economy and make recommendations for limiting their activities.
