Canada’s Economic Action Plan 2015: Economic Strength

Our Conservative Government recently tabled Canada’s Economic Action Plan 2015: a low-tax
plan that will help to create jobs, spur economic growth, and ensure long-term prosperity for all
Canadians. It’s a budget that focuses on the priorities of hard-working Canadian families.
It’s also the budget that returns us to balance.
Just a few short years ago, Canadians faced a storm in the world economy. The Great Recession
did not start in Canada, but it hit us hard none the less.
As the worst economic crisis since the 1930’s, the recession demanded a nearly unprecedented
Our Conservative government tackled the challenge head-on. We launched our Economic
Action Plan: a low-tax plan to create jobs, growth, and long-term prosperity. We invested in
infrastructure – over 30,000 projects from coast to coast to coast – that created jobs just when
Canadians needed them most.
At the same time, we cut taxes across the board – for individuals, families, and businesses – so
that Canadians had more money in their pockets to spend on their priorities.
The results are clear. Our plan worked.
We have recovered all of the jobs lost during the Great Recession. More than that, we have
created over 1.2 million net new jobs. These are overwhelmingly full-time, high-paying, private
sector jobs. This is a record Canadians can be proud of.
But the job is not done yet. We live in an era of profound global economic uncertainty. The
world economy is fragile. That is why we must continue to bring to focus on the priorities of
Canadians: creating jobs, growth, and long-term prosperity.
For that we need a plan and a strong leader who see it through. Economic Action Plan 2015 is
that plan – and Prime Minister Stephen Harper is that leader.
This budget works for Canadians. We made a promise in the dark days of the recession that we
would follow a plan to return to balanced budgets once the crisis passed. We are fulfilling that
promise. For the first time since the downturn, the budget is balanced.
With the fiscal flexibility that comes with a budgetary surplus, we can continue making targeted
investments to create jobs and growth, while cutting taxes further for hard-working Canadians.
