Abstract

Saving and investment are critical to Canada's economy. They underpin today's prosperity and will be critical to raising living standards in the future. Growth in Canada's workforce is slowing, and a larger population of older Canadians will soon need pensions and social services. Federal fiscal policy must ensure that the environment in which Canadians work, save and invest encourages them to set aside resources for the future, and to invest in ways that will raise living standards for individual families, and for the country as a whole.
