Budget Analysis Canada: Budget 2019
Economic conditions have been generally favourable in the last few months for Canadian public finances. Strong job growth and the upward trend in salaries led to a faster increase in budgetary revenues. After an exceptional increase of 6.0 % in 2017–2018, budgetary revenues continued their momentum in 2018–2019, with an increase of 6.7 %.
