5 Minutes for Business: Budget 2017 – Let’s Not “Wait and See”

In this edition of 5 Minutes for Business, Hendrik Brakel, our Senior Director, Economic, Financial and Tax Policy, addresses all the hype - or lack thereof - surrounding the release of the federal budget 2017. It seems all the buildup fostered by the Liberals did not exceed our expectations and if anything, the lackluster document did very little to address the innovation agenda. 

Read 5 Minutes for Business to find out why the "wait and see" approach we've taken to the U.S. tax reform won't improve Canadian competitiveness and why we must take action now. 

For more information, please contact Hendrik Brakel.
