Canadian AIDS Society

22 April 2015 - In light of an imminent election, the Minister of Finance Joe Oliver tactically unveiled the first "balanced" budget in eight years on April 21, 2015 in an effort to entice more and more voters to cast a ballot for the Conservative government.

During his speech, Minister Oliver echoed last year's remarks by stating that Economic Action Plan 2015 was "a prudent and principled plan that will see Canadians more prosperous, more secure and even more confident in our country's place in the world."

We were discouraged by the government's lack of initiative in addressing important issues affecting People Living with at risk of HIV/AIDS, such as prevention strategies and social inequalities.

Post-2015 “Request for Feedback”

E-mail Print PDF

As many of you might know, DFATD launched an on-line "Request for Feedback" on its priorities for post-2015. This has been in the works for almost a year and a half, and comes very late in the process. Deadline for submissions is May 8.

We think it is essential that we respond. Although our collective input might not have a major influence on the current priorities, nor the final outcome of the discussions in New York, we do think it could help shape implementation of those Canadian priorities both post-2015, and by the current or any new government post-election. This is a good opportunity to provide feedback on how we think those priorities should be implemented or refined. And it provides an opportunity to share some key messages with the current and future government. So we believe that it is very important that our sector respond to this consultation; that there be a number of organizations who respond and lay out their respective reflections; and that ideally there be some common messages included within those responses.

DFATD will produce an informal summary of feedback, and will share this on May 12, at the pre-Conference face-to-face dialogue on post-2015 that CCIC is organizing in collaboration with CAIDP and DFATD. This summary of feedback from a key constituency could also be an important tool to bring to all parties, and push our collective and individual messages!
