The government can help Canadians build a strong economy by creating the right conditions for Canadians to succeed. Tax relief measures, investments and competitive business taxes will help create jobs and boost Canada's productivity. Incentives to work, save, and invest will ultimately improve the living standards of Canadians.
Strong economic growth also includes economic development in all regions and sectoral competitiveness. The government recognizes that regional development policies are important components of a comprehensive strategy to help the regions of Canada exploit the opportunities in a global economy. An integral role of the federal government is to capitalize on regional strengths using a balanced approach in order to secure a higher standard of living and a better quality of life for all Canadians.
