Harper Government Launches the Next Phase of Canada's Economic Action Plan—A Low-Tax Plan for Jobs and Growth
The Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, today tabled a budget plan that launches the Next Phase of Canada's Economic Action Plan, a low-tax plan for jobs and growth, which keeps the Government on track to return to balanced budgets in the medium term.
"Our Government will build on the success of our stimulus plan," said Minister Flaherty. "As the private sector moves ahead as the engine of growth and job creation, our Government will foster the right conditions for long-term economic prosperity, while staying on track to return to balance in the medium term."
Building on the sustainable, low-tax environment and growth-friendly policies put in place since 2006, the Next Phase of Canada's Economic Action Plan will focus on supporting job creation, supporting families and communities, investing in innovation, education and training, and preserving Canada's fiscal advantage.
