Fiscal Update

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              Trudeau government is expected to use the fall fiscal update to announce more money for children and the working poor, along with shrinking federal deficits. But despite the economy’s surprisingly strong performance in early 2017, Finance Minister Bill Morneau still isn’t expected to provide a timeline to bring the federal books back to balance. Sources say the government will introduce anti-poverty measures in the update, including enhancing the Canada Child Benefit through indexation. The benefit is not currently set to be indexed to inflation until after 2019.
