Canadians Invited to Offer Their Ideas on How to Grow and Strengthen the Middle Class

Department of Finance Canada Our government is working hard to grow the economy and provide more support for the middle class. Over 500,000 new jobs have been created since 2015 and the unemployment rate is nearly the lowest it has been in a decade. Canada now has the fastest-growing economy in the G7, giving the Government the ability to reinvest the benefits of that growth back into the people who contributed most to that success. As Canada’s economy continues to grow, it is important to ensure that the benefits of that growth are shared by the middle class and those working hard to join it. That means continuing to make smart investments in people and communities to ensure continued progress for the middle class, and investing in lifelong learning to give Canadians the tools they need to find good, well-paying jobs in the economy of tomorrow. It also means ensuring that government policy and budget decisions consider impacts on all genders and advance gender equality. Leona Alleslev, Member of Parliament for Aurora—Oak Ridges—Richmond Hill is inviting residents, businesses and non-profit organizations to provide their input for Budget 2018. Let the government know what your family, community, and country need in order to position for the future with confidence. Canadians can submit their ideas and suggestions online through the website launched today, www.budget.gc.ca/pbc18 and to MP Alleslev by email at Leona.Alleslev@parl.gc.ca. Quote “Our Government’s plan to strengthen and grow the middle class is working. It is creating jobs, improving lives, strengthening communities and growing the economy. But we still have work to do. This is why we are continuing with our plan to invest in the middle class and those working hard to join it. Our government needs the ideas and suggestions of all Canadians on how we can strengthen our country together. I look forward to hearing from residents of Aurora—Oak Ridges—Richmond Hill to ensure we work together on Budget 2018 to build a strong foundation in order to position our nation for the next 150 years. – Leona Alleslev, Member of Parliament for Aurora—Oak Ridges—Richmond Hilll
