CCPA releases Alternative Federal Budget 2011

The CCPA released the Alternative Federal Budget for 2011 today. This year's AFB presents a comprehensive recovery plan designed to:

  • get Canadians working in good jobs again;
  • reduce record-high income inequality, strengthen Canada’s middle class, and improve supports for Canada’s poor and most vulnerable;
  • protect public programs that all Canadians rely on — including public health care and public pensions;
  • manage Canada’s debt-to-GDP ratio without vital public program cuts;
  • get serious about reducing greenhouse gas emissions; and
  • launch a multi-pronged initiative to expand high value-added production in key sectors.

The full budget document, budget in brief, and two page summary are available in both English and French.
