CPA Canada Encouraged By Throne Speech Fiscal Priorities

TORONTO, Oct. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - The Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) welcome the federal government's commitment to prudent fiscal management and a focus on growing the Canadian economy as outlined in today's Throne Speech.

The government states that creating jobs and securing economic growth remain its top priorities. It also used the Throne Speech to stress that sound management remains its guide.

"Establishing a sound fiscal base from which to work is essential if the government is to have the flexibility required to help Canada achieve a sustainable recovery," said Kevin Dancey, FCPA, FCA, president and CEO, CPA Canada.

The Throne speech reiterated the government's plans for a return to balanced budgets by 2015. "We cannot afford any slippage if Canada is to establish a fiscal framework that will set the stage for a stronger economy," explained Dancey.

CPA Canada also applauded commitments to address matters such as international trade, easing the red tape burden on small and medium-sized businesses and greater tax relief once the budget is balanced.
