Kayleigh Harrison wins Canadian Tax Foundation award

Uvic Law student Kayleigh Harrison has won the 2015-2016 Canadian Tax Foundation Student Paper Prize for her paper in Martha O’Brien’s Advanced Tax course last spring: “Seeking Harmonious Resolution: Examining the Treatment of Canadian Orchestral Musicians with Regard to Their Status as Employees or Independent Contractors.”

The prize comes with $2000 and the abstract is published in the Canadian Tax Journal. Every year prizes are awarded regionally, with up to four prizes across Canada. Kayleigh’s paper won the Canadian Tax Foundation-Bert Wolfe Nitikman Foundation Award for the Western Provinces. Yara Nosikova, another advanced tax student of Martha O’Brien’s, won the prize last year, and Nadine Russell won the prize in 2010. In fact, Martha’s advanced tax students have won this prize five times; more than those of any other tax professor in the country.

Congratulations Kayleigh!
