Five Things to Know About the 2018 Federal Budget
I’ve written a blog post about the 2018 federal budget.
Points made in the blog post include the following:
-Important new housing investments were made for First Nations, Inuit and Métis people.
-The Working Income Tax Benefit was expanded, made automatic and rebranded (i.e., renamed).
-Canada’s official unemployment is now the lowest it’s been in decades.
-Canada’s federal debt-to-GDP ratio is (by far) the lowest of any G7 country.
