Canada needs an economic growth strategy. Governments across Canada must cooperatively work
on economic recovery with the same energy and commitment they dedicated to establishing public
health measures months ago. Canada’s economic infrastructure has been severely damaged by the
COVID-19 pandemic and must now be repaired to support the weight of $1.2 trillion in public debt.
Governments must be singularly focused on restoring the health and growth of our private sector
economy. Governments must remove regulatory and other disincentives holding back new private
sector investment in Canada. Canada’s economic competitors will be doing the same and
endeavoring to increase their global market share of trade in a post-COVID-19 world. As such,
governments across Canada must consider all new targeted spending and tax relief through the lens of
global economic competitiveness and growth. Read the complete pre-budget submission here.
