Budget 2024

April 16 budget must prioritize growth 

Brian Porter calls on the government to prioritize child care along with other measures to grow the economy in the upcoming federal budget. In a story by the Financial Post about Scotiabank’s annual shareholders meeting, he highlights a few suggestions of what elements might be included in a national child care strategy.

“Providing greater flexibility to families to find child care arrangements that are best suited for them is good for women, it’s good for families and it’s good for the country.”
