The Canadian Budget, 2018: Forging New and Better Investments in Research and Innovation

Authors: Mark Schrutt, Jason Bremner

Abstract

The 2018 Canadian budget was tabled on February 26. It called for C$339 billion in spending on operational programs, expenditures, and debt coverage compared with C$329 billion in fiscal year 2017–2018. Furthermore, the government is projecting its budget to increase by 3.3% over the next two years.

"The main two themes in the 2018 budget were support for middle- and lower-class families and providing opportunities for women, particularly entrepreneurs and women-led businesses," says Mark Schrutt, strategic advisor, Innovation and Public Sector Research.
