CHARLOTTETOWN, Prince Edward Island, December 02, 2011 — The Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, today took part in a pre-budget roundtable discussion in Charlottetown with business, academic and sectoral leaders from across the country.

“Budget 2012 will maintain our focus on jobs and economic growth while reducing the deficit and returning to balance in the medium term,” said Minister Flaherty. “Today and in coming weeks, I want to hear from Canadians on how we can advance the next phase of our Economic Action Plan to continue to deliver results on these prioirities.”

Cross-country consultations with Minister Flaherty will continue into the New Year, with venues and details to be announced as they become available.

In order to ensure that all Canadians can participate in this process, the Government of Canada has also launched online pre-budget consultations.
