Trudeau and his Liberals have $pent us in a crisis.

Main Conclusions

  • While the federal government significantly increased its debt in 2020 and 2021, the pandemic exacerbated Canada’s pre-existing fiscal challenges rather than created them.
  • Between 2015/16 and 2019/20, the federal government ran five consecutive deficits, causing nominal federal net debt to rise by $112.2 billion.
  • During this period, growth in federal program spending was far more rapid than growth in revenues. In fact, the Trudeau government boosted nominal federal program spending by 36.1%, from $248.7 billion in 2014/15 to $338.5 billion in 2019/20.
