The Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, will present Economic Action Plan 2012 on March 29 in the House of Commons at approximately 4 p.m. EDT.

“In an uncertain global economy our Government will stick with our low-tax plan for jobs and growth—a plan that has worked and is continuing to serve Canadians well,” said Minister Flaherty.

“Economic Action Plan 2012 will continue to focus on making Canada's economy stronger for today and over the long-term, with prudent growth initiatives and responsible spending of taxpayers' dollars,” continued Minister Flaherty. “The Government will continue to work on improving the well-being of Canadians by securing the recovery, eliminating the deficit, and investing in the key drivers of long-term economic growth.”
