Dr. Lindsay Tedds (Ph.D., McMaster University) is an Associate Professor of Economics and Scientific Director of Fiscal and Economic Policy at the School of Public Policy, University of Calgary. Lindsay holds a BA in Political Science from Carleton University, a BA and MA in Economics from the University of Victoria, and a PhD in Economics from McMaster University. Before becoming an academic held several posts with the Government of Canada in Ottawa as well as in municipal government in the areas of public economics and policy implementation.

Lindsay is a specialist in applied economic research and policy analysis, with a particular focus on the design and implementation of fiscal and tax policy. Her work spans a number of topics including taxation and poverty reduction, taxation of exploration expenses, tax non-compliance and the underground economy, municipal public finance, taxation and disclosure of stock options, and birth seasonality. She is the co-author and editor of several books and has published a number of book chapters, technical reports, interactive guides, and papers in peer-reviewed journals.

She regularly stimulates and engages in broader conversations about public policy beyond the academic community through a variety of channels, including sitting on expert panels. Lindsay is currently a member of the B.C. Basic Income expert panel appointed to study the potential for using a basic income approach in B.C.’s efforts to reduce poverty and prepare for the emerging economy. I also am sitting on the Royal Society of Canada's post-COVID economic recovery working group and the Calgary Chamber of Commerce's Municipal Platform Development Task Force. I was most recently a member of the City of Calgary's Financial Task Force and the BC MSP Task Force.
