Happy 2019, Eglinton-Lawrence!
Last year, we accomplished many milestones, and I’m truly proud of the progress we made together. Our accomplishments include:
- 700,000+ jobs created over the last three years
- Fair trade secured with our G7 partners through NAFTA renegotiation, and CETA and CPTPP implementation
- 300,000 children lifted out of poverty
- CPP and OAS for seniors increased
- National Housing Strategy introduced to reduce homelessness by half and make housing more affordable
- Climate change actioned by putting a price on pollution and giving a tax rebate to Canadian families
While we have made a lot of progress, there is still much work to do. This is why I hit the ground running at the beginning of the New Year.
During the month of January, I took to the road to showcase a number of infrastructure projects in the Maritimes, as well as Durham and Scarborough:
- Maritimes Infrastructure Tour Day 1: Reviewing the positive impacts of our infrastructure program on construction, education, health and recreation in Cape Breton, NS
- Maritimes Infrastructure Tour Day 2: Promoting progress in community mobility and connection, research innovation and economic growth via infrastructure investments in and around Antigonish, NS
- Maritimes Infrastructure Tour Day 3: Exploring youth employment, tourism, recreation intergovernmental partnerships in infrastructure and the Federal Gas Tax Fund in various communities in New Brunswick
- Maritimes Infrastructure Tour Day 4: Wrapping up the tour by looking into local business leadership, collaborative infrastructure planning and water access in and around Bristol, NB
- Durham and Scarborough Tour: Checking out how federal investments support public transit, tourism, innovation, small business and affordable housing
Our continued investment in infrastructure promotes economic growth, creates jobs and builds better communities throughout Canada.
In our riding, I continue to be a tireless advocate for community safety, youth employment and local businesses. The Summer Leadership Program (Deadline: February 1, 2019) and Canada Summer Jobs (Extended deadline for employers: February 3, 2019 – 6pm EST) provide young people in our riding the opportunity to acquire work experience, skills and jobs. I encourage you to get involved in these initiatives!
As always, we’re happy to assist you. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us by calling 416-781-5583, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or dropping by my constituency office, Monday to Friday (10am-4pm).
Member of Parliament, Eglinton-Lawrence
