Parliamentary Secretary Beech to discuss job creation and making life more affordable

Department of Finance Canada

The government’s focus on jobs and growth since the darkest days of the pandemic has enabled the Canadian economy to recover rapidly and strongly. Canada has recovered 114 per cent of the jobs lost compared to before the pandemic, and the unemployment rate now sits at just 4.9 per cent, the lowest in five decades.

Today, Terry Beech, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, started a tour in Calgary, Alberta. Throughout the week, he will meet with workers, businesses, and organizations to discuss various measures the government is implementing that will help to create more jobs, spur economic growth, develop green technologies, support rural economic development, and make housing more affordable.

Tomorrow, the Parliamentary Secretary will participate in more activities in Regina, Saskatchewan, and will then visit Iqaluit, Nunavut, on Wednesday and Thursday.
