Freeland says consultations launched to help rebuild Canada's economy post-COVID-19

Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland on Monday said the federal government is launching consultations to help “inform and guide” the country’s economic growth plan. Freeland outlined the need to rebuild Canada’s economy even stronger than before the coronavirus pandemic, and added this task must be done for it to be “more innovative and more competitive than ever,” especially since the pandemic has “exposed critical gaps” in Canada’s social safety net.
