SOLD OUT: Post Budget Member Forum with Hon. Michael de Jong, Minister of Finance

Register today for our annual Post-Budget briefing with the Honourable Michael de Jong on Friday, February 24th. Don't miss this opportunity for an in-depth look at the province's economic plan and fiscal outlook in advance of the provincial election this spring,  presented by British Columbia's Minister of Finance.  

Minister de Jong will table Budget 2017 in the provincial legislature on Tuesday, February 21st. While the government has indicated its intention to balance the budget, the Business Council looks forward to hearing what measures the government will implement to improve our province's competitiveness. A broadly competitive tax system is essential if we are to attract the investment and stimulate the entrepreneurial wealth creation needed to sustain jobs and grow incomes. The recommendations made by the Commission on Tax Competitiveness last fall echoed many of those put forward by the Business Council earlier this year, and we remain optimistic that some of the short-term measures, such as PST exemptions and maintaining the current corporate income tax rate, will be included in this year's budget.

We hope you will join us on February 24th at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia.
