Budget 2022 invests in three main things: people; economic growth; and a clean future for everyone. Through these targeted and responsible investments, our government will help make life more affordable, create jobs and prosperity today, and build a stronger economic future for all Canadians.
In this Budget, we are:
Canada has the strongest jobs recovery in the G7 having recouped 112 per cent of the jobs lost since the peak of the pandemic and our unemployment rate is down to just 5.5 per cent—close to the 5.4 per cent low in 2019 that was Canada’s best in five decades. Through the pandemic, we maintained the lowest net debt-to-GDP ratio relative to our G7 international peers. Now, as we emerge from the pandemic, our government is focused on the priorities that Canadians expect us to deliver on: making life more affordable, creating jobs and growing the economy, and ensuring a clean future for everyone.
