2023 Federal Budget Consultation: Support investment in financial empowerment services

30 January 2023
The 2023 Federal Budget Consultation is underway, with the deadline set for February 10, 2023.  

This is a chance for the government to hear directly from individuals and organizations about priorities for Budget 2023, through written submissions and/or the completion of a short (5 min) survey.  

This survey is a quick and easy opportunity to draw attention to the need for sustained investment in financial empowerment services; a key priority for Prosper Canada. We encourage you to complete the survey, and share it with staff, board members and stakeholders. This is an opportunity to have your voice heard, and to draw attention to this critical issue.  

If you’d like to help draw attention to this priority, we suggest the following message be included in the response to Question 9, which provides an opportunity to write in on priority issues: 

  • Sustained investment in community financial help services (tax filing, benefit assistance and financial coaching/counselling) for low- and moderate-income people to help them with growing financial vulnerability. 
Completion of this survey is part of a longer-term effort to bring more government attention to the growing financial vulnerability of low- and moderate-income people and engage the federal government in helping to close the current gap in access to affordable, appropriate and trustworthy financial help for people with low incomes across Canada.
