Finance Committee report on pre-budget consultations a win for chemistry industry
December 12, 2018
The House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance’s report on the pre-budget consultations was released December 10, and includes a number of recommendations directly responsive to CIAC’s requests. Of note is Recommendation 9 (page 40) to, “Work with all other levels of government to align and coordinate efforts to create a competitive investment climate across Canada to attract world-class value-added petrochemical facilities.”
This success is a result of eight months of CIAC engagement with Finance Committee members, which included CIAC’s 2019 Federal Pre-budget Consultation submission and testifying at the pre-budget consultation hearings in October.
