CORRIERE CANADESE / Lotta all’inflazione e svolta ambientale nel Budget 2023 del governo liberale

TORONTO – Misure anti inflazione, incentivi per lo sviluppo delle industrie a basso impatto ambientale e sostegno della crescita. Il Budget 2023 del governo guidato da Justin Trudeau mette nero su bianco le linee guida dell’agenda di governo per i prossimi dodici mesi e conferma quelle che erano state le priorità già elencate nell’ultimo periodo da Chrystia Freeland. Il ministro delle Finanze, ieri pomeriggio subito dopo la chiusura dei mercati, ha presentato la Manovra alla House of Commons, una legge di bilancio che stando alle previsioni dovrebbe ottenere il via libera decisivo dell’Ndp di Jagmeet Singh.

Canadian prices on the rise forcing consumers to spend more

The holiday shopping season is in full swing. This year’s outlook is forecasted to be better than last year, according to Deloitte Canada. The accounting organization that specializes in professional services like audit, consulting and financial advisory suggests shoppers are likely to spend an estimated average of $1,841 this holiday season, an increase of 31%, compared to the $1,405 spent last year.

With over 75% of eligible Canadians fully vaccinated against Covid-19 combined with heightened consumer confidence, it’s understandable that more people are likely to venture out this year to celebrate and spend more doing so. Yet, not all appears to be positive.
