Since the election, Toronto Centre MP Bill Morneau and our Liberal Government has put in place a plan to grow the economy in a way that works for the middle class and those working hard to join it. We have:
- Raised taxes on the wealthiest one per cent, so we could cut taxes for the middle class
- Introduced and increased the Canada Child Benefit, which gives more money to 9 out of 10 Canadian families and has already lifted 300,000 children out of poverty
- Strengthened the Canada Pension Plan, lowered the eligibility age for Old Age Security benefits from 67 to 65, and lifted 57,000 seniors out of poverty by increasing the Guaranteed Income Supplement
- Canadians have created hundreds of thousands of new jobs leading to an historically low unemployment rate
Our Government’s top priority is to make smart and responsible investments to strengthen the middle class, grow the economy and prepare Canadians for the economy of tomorrow.
