The House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance has issued its annual call for written submissions to the pre-budget consultations in advance of Budget 2024, due on Friday 4th August. It’s tempting to dismiss this exercise, especially as recent federal budgets have offered crumbs for Canada’s science ecosystem, but we need to take every opportunity to weigh in to make sure that science and research have a meaningful place in the next federal budget.
Not sure about how to write a submission, or want a refresher?
Join us and Support Our Science next Tuesday, July 18 at 12:30 PM ET, for a webinar on how to prepare submissions for the pre-budget consultations. We’ll cover what goes into the making of a budget, as well as issues that you can potentially raise in your submission, with guest speakers Sarah Laframboise and Dr. Frédéric Bouchard.
