2017 Fall Economic Statement Delivering More Canada Child Benefit support, Small Business Tax Cut, and Other Measures

Markham-Thornhill – The 2017 Fall Economic Statement will deliver more Canada Child Benefit Support, cut the federal Small Business Tax Rate, enhance the Working Income Tax Benefit, and other measures to help the middle class and those working hard to join it. Mary Ng, Member of Parliament for Markham-Thornhill, attended the event in the House of Commons on October 24, 2017. The Fall Economic Statement also highlighted the Canadian economy`s stronger than anticipated performance this year, a result of the government`s plan they have been pursuing since 2015 to invest in the middle class and those working hard to join it.

Mary Ng noted that people and businesses in Markham-Thornhill will benefit from new measures announced in the Fall Economic Statement including:

“The strengthened Canada Child Benefit is giving more money to Middle Class families; the Working Income Tax Benefit is keeping more money in the pockets of hard working Canadians; and the small business tax cut will ensure businesses have more money to save, invest and grow our economy. This is good news for Markham-Thornhill.“
