2021 Pre-budget consultations
CCA submitted a pre-budget submission to the Standing Committee on Finance on August 6, 2020. In its June forecast, Economic Development Canada identified agriculture as one of the top sectors that will be best able to weather the storm of COVID-19. Last year, Canadian beef exports grew an impressive 17 per cent and opportunity for further growth remains. Canada’s beef sector holds economic growth potential and the ability to enhance meaningful environmental outcomes, such as grassland and wetland preservation, carbon storage, enhanced flood resiliency and increased wildlife and pollinator habitat.
