Michael Chan Becomes Ontario's Minister Of Revenue
Michael Chan, MPP for Markham, has joined the Ontario Cabinet as Minister of Revenue, Premier McGuinty said today.
"Michael is a strong member of our team and brings a great deal of experience to this position," McGuinty said. "Michael is passionate about building opportunity for Ontario families and we're happy to have him on the team."
As Minister, Chan will help provide a smooth transition to a single corporate tax collection system together with the federal government. Once in place, the new system will reduce compliance costs and help all Ontario businesses spend less time filling out paperwork and more time creating opportunity for Ontario workers and their families.
Before joining government, Chan owned his own insurance brokerage in Markham with 30 employees and hundreds of agents. Originally from Hong Kong, he and his wife Elaine have two sons, Brian and Alex.
