What do you want to see in the federal and provincial budgets?
Federal and provincial finance ministers are working on their annual budgets.
In addition to a renewed health care accord and a national pharmacare program, RNAO also believes investments in affordable housing, transit and transportation are important. These are just some of the recommendations RNAO presented to a pre-budget consultation held by the federal government in Kitchener on Dec. 9.
The federal and provincial budgets affect all Canadians. That’s why it’s important for you to speak out and discuss the investments you want to see in your communities.
