Moving Canada forward: Insights from the 2018-2019 federal budget

  • Canada Image

Feb 28, 2018

On February 28, 2018, we released our analysis, Moving Canada forward, where we explore how the federal budget advances three key areas where we believe bold action is needed to ensure the future prosperity of our businesses and our country.

In this year’s budget, the federal government outlines how it intends to support economic growth, promote sustainability, and foster a thriving, inclusive society for all Canadians in a time of rapid change and ongoing uncertainty.

What does the federal budget mean for Canada and Canadian businesses?

We discuss the following three areas:

  • Focusing investment and resources to drive competitive advantage
  • Accelerating the flow of people, goods and ideas
  • Disrupting the status quo in education and skills development

A video is also available where Albert Baker, Canadian Tax partner and Global Tax Policy Leader, offers his insights on the corporate tax measures contained in the 2018-2019 federal budget, reviewing both domestic and international tax proposals. And David Mason, Canadian Tax partner, discusses changes affecting private companies and their shareholders.

For more information, review the publication and a video.
