Yesterday’s tabling of the 122 measure budget in the midst of an Alberta writ drop and the cancellation of the judicial committee undoubtedly set the tone for the 2019 general election.

With commentary coming from both the public and private sectors, there is much to fiscally dissect and analyze in the context of a tumultuous political climate. Multiple economists are arguing that the contents will not make Canada more competitive. Others are arguing that investments promised will help many Canadians.

On Tuesday March 26, the PAAC post-budget panel will take a deep dive into the niche measures that will undoubtedly affect GR and PA professionals and their clients. Join us as our panel discusses these initiatives and provides insight into the cost-benefit analysis of this year’s budget in a period of political flux.
