In the Spotlight
Minister of Finance Jim Flaherty held a media availability prior to holding pre-budget consultations on Friday, December 6, 2013.
A strong financial system is one in which consumers are confident that their interests are well protected by a high-quality regulatory framework. As committed to in Economic Action Plan 2013, the Government of Canada will conduct consultations on the development of a new and comprehensive financial consumer code. The consultations will seek to establish high-level principles for a financial consumer protection framework leading to a Code that will streamline the existing and dispersed mix of legislation and regulations, and take into account the needs of vulnerable Canadians including seniors.
The Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, launched this year's pre-budget consultations in Toronto. This marks the launch of a series of events in communities across the country, as well as online consultations, aimed at engaging Canadians in Economic Action Plan 2014 deliberations.
