Canada's Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland will deliver Canada’s 2021 federal budget on April 19, 2021.
Although the government has signalled that this year's budget may largely focus on Canada's post-pandemic economic recovery, including changes to transition to a "greener, more inclusive and more prosperous economy", any specific details on what measures may be under consideration are kept under wraps until the budget is released. However, when preparing this year's federal budget, it's likely that the government will draw heavily from the 2021 and 2020 reports from the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance (Finance Committee), as well as its remaining measures from its 2019 election platform. There may be additional indications about what's to come in the government's public comments from mandate letters, the 2020 Throne Speech and other recent public announcements.
