Ottawa: Canada’s Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland will present the Federal Budget on March 28. Amid rising inflation and increasing cost of living, there are expectations that the Finance Minister may provide relief to Canadians in the Federal Budget.
Speaking at an event in Ontario’s Oshawa, Federal Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland gave a hint on what kind of relief Canadians can expect in the Budget.
While addressing a gathering, she said, “In the weeks to come for those Canadians who feel the bite of rising prices most acutely, for almost all friends and neighbors, their government will deliver additional targeted inflation relief.”
However, she acknowledged that it would not be possible to provide help for all Canadians, but she said her government will provide additional targeted inflation relief.
While on Twitter she wrote, “ Our 2023 budget will be a serious plan at an important time. Supporting Canadians, strengthening public health care, building Canada’s clean economy and creating good jobs, and building a Canada where everyone can share in the remarkable opportunities that our country provides.”
