Economic Strategy

Sound fiscal policy, investments to enhance growth and productivity, and competitive tax rates are fundamental to success in the global economy.

Responsible and effective policies help Canada attract people and investment, enable companies to grow and create jobs, and allow families to build better lives for themselves and for their children.

Areas of focus include:

Jobs and Growth

Enabling a competitive environment that delivers economic growth and high-value jobs to Canadians from coast to coast to coast.

Public Finances

Federal and provincial budgets that invest responsibly in people and growth-enabling initiatives.


Modernizing and simplifying Canada’s overly complex, inefficient, and dated tax system.


Jobs and Growth

A new innovation mandate for a new Innovation Minister

Collaboration between business and government will be key to achieving a successful growth strategy, as outlined in the Business Council of Canada’s framework Powering a Strong Recovery and the Industry Strategy Council’s December report.
