OTTAWA, Nov. 4, 2016 /CNW/ - The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today marked the one year anniversary of the swearing-in of the 29 th Ministry. Exactly one year ago, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet took office with a clear mandate to deliver real change for Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast. Since then, the government has worked hard to fulfill its commitment to strengthen the middle class and grow the economy over the long term. By listening to Canadians and by following through on the things that matter most to them, the government has started to deliver real results for all Canadians: 1. As a first step, the Prime Minister named his Cabinet that was not only gender-balanced, but reflected the great diversity of Canada. Janice, Saskatoon:"I'm a 67 year old female - born and raised in Saskatchewan - and I have fought for gender parity throughout my entire professional life. It's a wonderful day when I see a cabinet that is made up of so many women. Finally, in 2015, we have come a long way!" 2. After one month in office, the government introduced a middle class tax cut that asked the wealthiest one percent to pay a little more so that the middle class - and those working hard to join it - could pay less. Brandon and Briana, Scarborough:"Thanks to the government's tax cut, both Brandon and I will each get a tax break of almost $450 this year. When we put it together, that gives us enough to make an advance payment on our condo mortgage." 3. As part of Budget 2016, the federal government introduced a new Canada Child Benefit - a fair and generous tax-free monthly cheque that gives nine out of ten Canadian families more money to help with the high cost of raising their children.
