Across the country, an expanding middle class is driving economic growth, creating new jobs and more opportunities for everyone to succeed. Thanks to the hard work of Canadians, bolstered by the Government’s investments in people and communities, Canada’s economy is strong and growing. In the last three years, Canadians have created more than half a million new full-time jobs, the unemployment rate is at a 40-year low, wages are rising at their fastest rate in eight years, and consumer confidence is strong.
As part of the launch of pre-budget consultations, we invite Canadians to contribute their ideas on how the Government can continue to build an economy that works for everyone, with good jobs for the middle class and real help for the people working hard to join it.
Canadians can contribute their ideas to the Government’s pre-budget consultations through the Your Budget website found here: https://www.budget.gc.ca/pbc
Pre-budget consultations for Budget 2019 will close on January 29th 2019.
