Federal budget must lay out a plan for economic growth

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

With an end to the COVID-19 pandemic now in sight, Canadians are looking for hope when it comes to jobs and the economy.  

To build confidence, the federal government must present a comprehensive and credible plan that spurs investment, private sector job creation, and long-term economic growth.  

In our letter to Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland, we urged the government to embrace an economic strategy that builds on Canada’s natural advantages while improving the ability of Canadian companies and workers to succeed in the global economy.
