Marks Finance Minister Jim Flaherty’s 10th Federal Budget
January 27, 2014 – Ottawa, Ontario– Department of Finance
Finance Minister Jim Flaherty announced today that he will table Economic Action Plan 2014 in the House of Commons on February 11, 2014.
- The budget is the key policy document of the Government, defining how the Government intends to implement its priorities, which have often been previously defined through election commitments and the Speech from the Throne.
- The approval of Parliament must be obtained in order for measures proposed in the budget to be implemented. Members of Parliament also participate in the budget process through parliamentary standing committees, especially the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance.
“As we prepare Economic Action Plan 2014, our top priority remains jobs, growth and long-term prosperity. It is important that we continue to build on our successes and remain focused on the drivers of growth and job creation—innovation, investment, education, skills and communities—underpinned by our commitment to lower taxes and returning to a balanced budget in 2015.”
