The House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance (the “Committee”) published a News Release on June 12, 2020, launching its annual pre-budget consultation process in preparation of the 2021 Federal Budget. As usual, Canadians are invited to share their priorities for the next budget. Given the widespread effects that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the Canadian economy, the Committee has indicated that it is particularly interested in receiving submissions on “measures the federal government could take to restart the Canadian economy, as it recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.” Written submissions and recommendations can be made online to the Committee until Friday, August 7, 2020. After considering the submissions, a report will be tabled in the House of Commons in December 2020.
