Budget 2011 Consultation with Canadians

July 09, 2010
Thanks to the rapid and effective implementation of Canada's Economic Action Plan, Canada is on the right track to emerge from the global economic recession powered by one of the strongest economies in the industrialized world.
 
By key measures—job creation, economic growth, stability of our financial sector, and relatively low public debt—Canada is performing better than the United States and other G-7 countries. What’s more, both the International Monetary Fund and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation expect that Canada will have the strongest economic recovery of all G-7 countries over the next two years.
 
As the Government prepares Budget 2011, I personally invite you to make your voice heard as we work together to ensure Canada emerges from the global recession in a position of strength.
 
The Parliament of Canada’s Standing Committee on Finance is asking for all Canadians to provide their input as part of their annual pre-budget consultation hearings.
 
Many of the recommendations flowing out of this consultation process are implemented in the federal budget. Businesses, organizations and individuals are invited to participate in this important process.
 
However, the deadline to participate is fast-approaching as Friday August 13th is the deadline for written submissions.  If you are interested, be advised that submissions should be no more than 5 pages in length. Also, provide your name or your group’s name along with an address, phone number or email.
 
Once completed, please send your submission electronically to

FINA@parl.gc.ca or mail it to:
Jean-François Pagé, Clerk
Standing Committee on Finance
6-14 131 Queen Street
House of Commons Ottawa, Ontario
K1A 0A6

With your participation, we will ensure the priorities of our community will be heard loud and clear.
