Ten Things To Know About The 2017 Federal Budget
I’ve just written a blog post in which I review the recent federal budget.
Points raised in the blog post include the following:
-The federal government is projecting deficits in the $20B-$30B range for roughly the next five years.
-This was likely the most important federal budget for housing since 1993.
-The budget contains important new announcements for homelessness (my blog post provides a nice bar graph showing newly-announced homelessness funding, which was put together by my colleague Janice Chan).
The link to the full blog post is here.
