Economic Strategy

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

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.
