Rethinking the path forward
Watch a recording of BDO Canada's Tuesday, April 20 webinar, as we unpacked the details of the 2021 Federal Budget—what it means for Canadians, businesses, and the economy as we continue to navigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We examine the budget from a political perspective and offer economic analysis, with keynote guest speakers John Ivison, National Post Columnist, Ottawa bureau chief and accomplished author along with Trevin Stratton, Chief Economist of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
