Marco Mendicino

Hello Eglinton-Lawrence!

I hope that everyone enjoyed the beautiful sunny weather on the weekend. After a week spent in the riding reconnecting with you, I’ll be in Ottawa this week as our Government continues ensure all Canadians have an equal and fair chance at success.

Canada is committed to building a more peaceful and prosperous world. On March 19th, Minister Sajjan announced a Canadian task-force would take part in the ongoing peacekeeping efforts in Mali

On March 14th, the Government of Canada and Ontario announced the signing of a bilateral agreement that will invest more than $11.8 billion in infrastructure over the next decade through the Investing in Canada fund.

There has never been a better time for other countries to invest in Canada. On March 12th, Minister Champagne launched Invest in Canada, a new federal organization dedicated to attracting global investment and simplifying the process for global businesses to make Canada their new home, creating jobs that come with their investments

On February 27th, Canada’s Minister of Finance tabled Budget 2018 in the House of Commons, the Government’s plan to ensure that all Canadians have a fair and equal chance at success. It includes many highlights including: the new Canada Workers Benefit, an EI Parental Sharing Benefit, historic investments in Science and Research, and much, much more.

I was proud to announce $50,000 in funding through the Enabling Accessibility Fund and $52,000 through the Security Infrastructure Program to support a more accessible environment that’s free from the threat of hate motivated crimes on behalf of Ministers Goodale and Duncan on February 22nd at the Yeshivat Yesodei Hatorah in our riding.

As always, my constituency office is open and here to help! Feel free to drop by, Monday-Friday from 10am-4pm.
