Highlights initiatives to protect Canadian families while investing in innovation and research
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 14, 2014) - Office of the Minister of Industry
Industry Minister and Minister Responsible for British Columbia James Moore today addressed members of the Vancouver Board of Trade to underscore Economic Action Plan 2014 and what it means for jobs and growth in British Columbia. Minister Moore highlighted measures that will help Canadian families, empower consumers and support sectors of the economy to foster jobs, growth and innovation. Economic Action Plan 2014 contains no new taxes for families and businesses and continues to ensure that government spending is as efficient and effective as possible.
Minister Moore outlined new tax relief measures that build on the government's strong record of lowering taxes for Canadian businesses and families. These tax relief measures put money directly into the pockets of Canadians, so they can invest in the economy and have more choices in how they live their lives.
Minister Moore discussed specific measures from Economic Action Plan 2014 including:
"Our low-tax plan is supporting businesses and families across British Columbia. Since 2006, our government has cut taxes nearly 160 times, putting $3,400 back into the pockets of hard-working Canadian families and helping job-creating businesses. Economic Action Plan 2014 will help create jobs, keep the economy growing and return Canada to balanced budgets. Our government is focused on what matters most to Canadians and, with the help of Canada's Economic Action Plan, British Columbia is well positioned to grow for many years."
