2017 Federal Pre-Budget Submission to the Government of Canada

    OCC wants the federal budget to prioritize strengthening trade networks and closing the fiscal gap

    At a time when the Canadian economy is facing significant challenges, our competitiveness as a Nation has become even more critical to our growth and prosperity. We believe that Canada needs a strategic plan for long-term economic growth, one that includes:

    • Correcting the fiscal gap for Ontarians;
    • Strengthening Canada’s trade relationships to spur economic growth;
    • Boosting productivity and growth through infrastructure spending; and
    • Stewarding the innovation ecosystem through appropriate programs, incentives and taxation.

    Our 2017 Federal Pre-Budget Submission lays out nine recommendations across four key policy areas that, if adopted, will form the basis of a long-term economic growth strategy for Canada. We look forward to the 2017 budget and will continue to work with the federal government on behalf of Ontario’s business community.
