by Goldy Hyder – President and Chief Executive Officer, Business Council of Canada

A BNN Bloomberg story about our pre-budget letter to Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland emphasized the messages of the importance of business growth and access to affordable childcare to facilitate the economic recovery. It also highlighted how avoiding new permanent spending and creating a budget with a fiscal anchor is key to improving business confidence.

“For the economic recovery from COVID-19 to be durable and resilient, the budget must establish a responsible and credible fiscal framework.”
