COVID-19

Trudeau Polimetre

Because of the public health emergency to tackle the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the Trudeau government cancelled the presentation of its first budget.  Instead, it announced various emergency financial assistance programs. The Trudeau Polimetre team could not update the promise verdicts based on annual budget announcements in March.  Throughout the COVID 19 crisis, we will continue to follow the government while understanding that its primary focus is this unprecedented crisis.
