Laval, QC, March 28, 2023 – Teamsters Canada welcomes the newly released Federal Budget 2023 as it provides relief to middle-class families. The budget includes a variety of measures designed to protect Canadians’ economic security in the context of a rising cost of living.
François Laporte, President of Teamsters Canada, remarks, “The Federal Budget 2023 reflects the government’s dedication to help middle-class families. We believe that these steps will assist our members and all Canadians to face the ongoing challenges caused by economic instabilities.
