Canada: Federal budget expected 19 April 2021

Canada’s 2021 federal budget is expected to be delivered on 19 April 2021.


Although the government has signaled that this year’s budget may largely focus on Canada's post-coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic economic recovery, specific details on what measures may be under consideration are unknown until the budget is released.

Other possible measures in the budget may further extend COVID-19 support programs (such as the Canada emergency wage subsidy (CEWS)) or could limit interest deductions for certain corporations and reduce taxes for qualifying businesses in the “green sector.”
