Canadians are Invited to Share Their Priorities for the 2024 Federal Budget

Ottawa, June 16, 2023 -

The House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance is inviting Canadians to participate in its annual pre-budget consultations process. The Committee intends to table a report on these consultations in the House of Commons prior its adjournment in December 2023.

“The House Finance Committee’s pre-budget consultations provide Canadians with a great opportunity to convey their priorities for the government’s forthcoming budget,” said Mr. Peter Fonseca, M.P. for Mississauga East—Cooksville. “I am sure that Canadians will once again share their views in large numbers this year. I am always impressed by the breadth and quality of proposals that are brought to our attention and I look forward to learning about them.”

The deadline for submitting written briefs through the Committee’s website is no later than Friday, August 4, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Written briefs must be no longer than 2,000 words and should adhere to the following template. All text contained in the written brief, including – but not limited to – graphs, quotes, images and footnotes will count towards the limit of 2,000 words. Only one written brief per organization or individual will be accepted. Written briefs that do not meet these requirements may not be considered by the Committee. Following translation, the written briefs will be posted on the Committee’s website.

Committee Clerks will extend invitations to selected individuals and organizations to appear in the fall. All those who submit a written brief will be considered as having made a request to appear.
