Finance Minister Prioritizes Jobs and Growth in Difficult Global Economy

OTTAWA, Ontario, December 05, 2011 — In a speech to the Ireland-Canada Chamber of Commerce, the Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, today reiterated that the Harper Government’s top priority is to ensure continued growth and job creation in Canada.

“Our commitment to keep Canada strong is supported by our solid economic, fiscal and financial fundamentals,” said Minister Flaherty. “In uncertain times, the most important contribution government can make to bolster confidence and growth is to maintain a sound fiscal position.”

The Minister noted that the current volatility in global markets, particularly in Europe, threatens the global economy, and he continues to encourage European leaders to undertake decisive actions to resolve their crisis.

“Canada stands ready to respond again in a flexible and pragmatic manner if the economic challenges from beyond our shores begin to threaten jobs and the economy here,” Minister Flaherty said. “But we must always remember that we will only hold onto our advantages by continuing to pursue those strategies that made us so resilient in the first place—responsibility, discipline and determination.”
