As people in Canada continue to struggle with the impacts of COVID-19, workers and their families need strong measures to help ensure a healthy economic recovery when the pandemic is over. In Budget 2021, the federal government will unveil its roadmap towards economic recovery. The CLC recently presented its recommendations for Budget 2021 in a pre-budget submission to the government.
Among the top priorities for Canada’s unions are:
- fully containing the public health crisis and implementing national pharmacare;
- investing in the care economy; and
- and getting Canadians back to work and fully-employed in safe, decently-paid, productive and sustainable jobs.
