Archived - Harper Government Consulting with Small and Medium-Sized Businesses to Ensure Canada’s Economy Remains Strong

August 6, 2014 – Comox Valley, British Columbia – Department of Finance

Minister of State (Finance) Kevin Sorenson and Minister of State (Chief Government Whip) and Member of Parliament (Vancouver North Island) John Duncan met with business leaders in Comox Valley, British Columbia, today to discuss ways the Government and businesses can work together to build a stronger economy.

Minister of State Sorenson provided an update on the economy, financial literacy initiatives and the Government’s plan to return to a balanced budget. He also consulted businesses on how to further reduce red tape, enhance private sector growth, break down internal trade barriers and improve overall competitiveness.

Feedback from stakeholders and communities across the country helps the Government set policies that will continue to support families, communities and businesses so that all Canadians benefit from a strong economy as the federal budget returns to balance in 2015.
