Minister's Message

The Honourable Rona Ambrose, P.C., Q.C., M.P.As Minister responsible for Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD), I am pleased to present the Department's 2014–2015 Report on Plans and Priorities.

In the year ahead, creating jobs and securing economic growth is and will remain our Government’s top priority. Despite continued global economic uncertainty, Canada has stayed strong, now among only a few countries in the world with a triple-A credit rating. Canada’s economic resilience reflects the actions our Government has taken to lower taxes, pay down debt, reduce red tape and promote free trade and innovation.
Moving into 2014–15, WD will focus on new strategic directions to diversify and promote an innovative and resilient economy. This work will build on the Department’s solid foundation of investing in strategic projects, partnerships and programs that contribute towards economic growth, jobs and prosperity for all western Canadians.



The Honourable Rona Ambrose, P.C., M.P.
