Minister Morneau Meets With G20 Partners to Build a Global Economy That Works for Everyone
“Canada continues to show the world that when people work hard, and when governments step up to give people the help they need to get ahead, the result is an economy that is strong and growing—one that really does work for everyone. At the same time, Canada can’t go it alone. We need to keep working with our G20 partners and the international community to build a strong global economy where everyone has a real and fair chance at success.”
- Bill Morneau, Minister of Finance
According to the International Monetary Fund, Canada is expected to be the second-fastest-growing G7 economy in 2019 and to tie for the fastest-growing G7 economy in 2020.
Canada has the lowest net debt-to-GDP (gross domestic product) ratio among G7 countries.
Under the Government’s plan, hard-working Canadians have created over 1 million new jobs, most of them full-time, driving the unemployment rate to its lowest levels in more than 40 years. This includes especially strong employment gains by women.
