Budget 2024

The release of “Powering a Strong Recovery” and the letter to Prime Minister Trudeau in the lead up to the Fall Economic Update was profiled by the Financial Post. The coverage emphasized the Council’s call for the government to provide direct aid to distressed sectors including airlines, while establishing a clear “fiscal anchor” to impose discipline on budgetary decisions and help maintain credibility with credit-rating agencies.
