Helping Create Jobs, Growth and Long-Term Prosperity
December 05, 2012
On Wednesday, the Harper Government announced the passage of the Jobs and Growth Act, 2012 at Report Stage, an important step in the legislative process. This furthers our commitment to help create jobs, growth and long-term prosperity for all Canadians.
The Jobs and Growth Act, 2012 will help grow and strengthen the Canadian economy by implementing the important initiatives found in Economic Action Plan 2012.
These measures include:
- Extending the Hiring Credit for Small Business
- Improving Registered Disability Savings Plans
- Implementing the tax framework for Pooled Registered Pension Plans
- Closing tax loopholes to help ensure our tax code remains fair
Despite the global economic uncertainty we continue to face, the NDP and Liberals chose to vote against the Jobs and Growth Act, 2012 and voted against helping the Canadian economy grow and create jobs.
Fortunately, Canadians can count on our Government to take action and implement responsible initiatives aimed at helping both the Canadian economy and Canadian families.
