PM Trudeau says national fiscal “snapshot” coming in July

The federal government will present a fiscal snapshot on July 8th.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made the announcement Wednesday (June 17).  Trudeau did not call it a fiscal update, but an economic and fiscal snapshot.

A federal budget was to be presented back in March, hoever the COVID-19 pandemic scuttled that plan.  Trudeau says the snapshot will provide a portrait of where we are right now and how Canada’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic compares to other countries.

Trudeau says it will also allow Canadians to see “the scale and details of the measures that have been rolled out.”

The Conservatives have withheld support for the latest emergency legislation until a fiscal update was presented and regular sittings of Parliament resume. Trudeau had previously said a fiscal update was impossible at this time because the number of unknowns makes meaningful forecasting impossible.
