In the past year, our government took important steps towards helping middle class families regain the confidence they’ll need to drive our economy forward:
- We introduced the middle class tax cut which put more money into the pockets of 9 million Canadians
- We rolled out the Canada Child Benefit which will help 9 out 10 families and lift 300,000 children out of poverty.
- We strengthened the Canada Pension Plan so that Canadians can have a secure and dignified retirement.
In our next Budget, we will build on this momentum and focus on the long-term – transforming the economy to strengthen the middle class and position Canada for the global economy of tomorrow.
I want to hear from you.
Last year’s pre-budget consultations had the highest-ever turnout on record, we reached over 250,000 people and received over 5,200 submissions.
That’s why I am inviting my constituents to share their ideas for Budget 2017.
I want to hear your ideas on how we can make the economy work for you and your family. Where can we invest to create more and better jobs? What opportunities should new graduates look forward to? How can we ensure we position Canadian businesses to compete around the world? How can we make sure our success is shared with those who need it most?
Email me your thoughts and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or call my constituency office at 905-773-8358.
