Canada's Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland will deliver Canada's 2022 federal budget on April 7, 2022. Although the government has signalled that this year's budget may largely focus on themes such as affordability, housing and income inequality, 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 2022 pre-budget report from the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance (Finance Committee), as well as measures from its 2021 election platform. There may be additional indications about what's to come in the government's recent public announcements.
