Alternative Federal Budget 2017


More and more Canadians are feeling the impact of inequality in their daily lives. That's why we're urging the federal government to table a budget that makes good on its promises to reduce income inequality and drive inclusive growth. The Alternative Federal Budget 2017: High Stakes, Clear Choices proves there is a clear path to a more equal and sustainable future.

This year, the AFB proposes a federal budget that takes decisive action on what matters to Canadians: creating jobs, reducing income inequality, lowering poverty levels, closing unfair and expensive tax loopholes, and getting the economy moving. The measures in this year’s AFB would lift a million Canadians out of poverty, double economic growth to 5.4%, and, at its peak, result in 460,000 new jobs, bringing Canada’s unemployment rate down to 6.4%.
