Report on Plans and Priorities 2015-16

Minister's Message

The Honourable Rona Ambrose, P.C., M.P.As the Minister responsible for Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD), I am pleased to present the Department's 201516 Report on Plans and Priorities.

Creating jobs and securing economic growth remains our Government's top priority. Canada stands as one of the few remaining countries in the world with a triple-A credit rating, something our Government believes is a testament to the important work we have accomplished. Canada's economic prosperity reflects the actions our Government has taken to lower taxes, pay down debt, reduce red tape and promote free trade and innovation.

Moving into 2015–16, WD will continue to focus on strategic directions aimed at diversifying and promoting a strong western Canadian economy that fosters innovation and diversification. WD investments and support of strategic projects, partnerships and programs, directly contribute towards economic growth, job creation and prosperity for all western Canadians.



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