Minister Day Talks Economic Growth with Whitehorse Community Members

WHITEHORSE, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - The Honourable Stockwell Day, President of the Treasury Board and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway, today met with small-business owners and working families in Whitehorse to discuss ways to create even more jobs and economic growth, as the Harper Government prepares for the next phase of Canada's Economic Action Plan

"The economy of all the regions of our country remains the number one priority of the Prime Minister and our Government," said Minister Day. "We will continue to focus on creating jobs for workers, retirement savings for seniors and the financial security of all Canadian families. We will thus continue to pay particular attention to the economy of our regions because they play a major role in the development of our country."

Launched in 2009, the Economic Action Plan has so far contributed to the creation of 467,000 jobs since July 2009 and helped the country emerge from the global economic crisis faster and stronger than most other major industrial countries around the world. 

"It is clear that the Economic Action Plan is working," continued Minister Day. "It has created jobs in all regions of the country and provided financial security to Canadian families through the worst global recession since the Second World War." 

Over the last few weeks, the Prime Minister, Minister Day, and members of the Government have travelled to all regions of the country to gather input from Canadians on the next phase of Canada's Economic Action Plan
