Nearly four years ago, Canadians helped us build a plan for real change. It was a plan that would invest in the things that matter most: good, well-paying jobs for the middle class and people working hard to join it; more help for families struggling with the high cost of living; strong, connected communities; and better opportunities for our children and grandchildren. Canadians chose to invest in their future. And in the years since, those investments have begun to pay off.
