Making Life More Affordable

Even with Canada’s strong economy and record-low unemployment, it can be tough to make ends meet. The cost of groceries, cell phone bills, and child care all adds up.

That’s why the first order of business for Justin Trudeau and the Liberal team in this new mandate is lowering taxes again for the middle class — which will benefit nearly 20 million Canadians.

While the Conservatives spent a decade cutting taxes for corporations and the very wealthiest, the Liberal plan will ensure that middle class Canadians, and the people working to join the middle class, pay no federal taxes on the first $15,000 they earn — saving the average family $585 in taxes each year.

Together, we can make a real difference for those who need it the most.

Add your name now to stand with Justin Trudeau and the Liberal team, and show support for our Middle Class tax cut.
