Our government is focusing on the things that matter most to Canadians – creating jobs, strengthening the middle class, and building a better future for our children. We are investing in Canadians and thanks to those investments and the hard work of Canadians, Canada’s economy is strong and growing.
We have come a long way over the past two and a half years and delivered real progress for people, including cutting taxes for the middle class and businesses, creating the Canada Child Benefit, and enhancing the Canada Pension Plan. Small businesses play a fundamental role in our economy and we will continue to support their growth and success. Our tax cuts will save small business owners up to $7,500 each year.
Since we were elected, Canadians have created over half a million jobs and the unemployment rate is near historic lows. The Canadian economy has created over 60% more full-time jobs than the Harper Conservatives did over the same period. Our government puts people first, builds on the hard work of Canadians and we remain focused on the future so that our children have better opportunities to follow their dreams, find good jobs and give back to their community.
