The Honourable Tony Clement, President of the Treasury Board of Canada to Address Economic Club

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 26, 2014) - As President of the Treasury Board, the Honourable Tony Clement played a central role in finding $5.2-billion in on-going savings for Canadian taxpayers. Under his watch, decades-old entitlements, like voluntary severance for public servants, have come to an end, representing an annual savings of $500-million alone. But there is more work to be done. With the introduction of Economic Action Plan 2014, the Government begins news tasks and finds innovative and common sense ways of providing value and improving services to Canadians. These efforts will challenge status quo thinking on how government operates and how its serves Canadians. It will embrace technology and cut through the time-consuming bureaucratic red tape that dampens business innovation and kills job creation. It will seek excellence in the public service and a shift in culture. And it will open up previously undisclosed government data to the public to be used in new and innovative ways that can benefit Canadians. It is an exciting agenda. Please join Minister Tony Clement as he shares what the Government is doing to stay on track to balance the budget by 2015 and pave the way for Canada to flourish in the years ahead.
