NEW – SK: Speech from the throne focuses on a 'Strong Saskatchewan'
On November 30, 2020, the Saskatchewan government unveiled its agenda for the next session of the legislature. The ongoing pandemic response and fulfilling the government’s election commitments were the two main focuses of the 2020 speech from the throne, entitled Strong Saskatchewan.
The first two bills the government plans to enact that will be of interest to CPA members include creating a new Home Renovation Tax Credit and reducing small business taxes. The CPA plans to advocate for moving from diesel to propane power generation and switching to propane-powered appliances to be eligible for the Home Renovation Tax Credit.
The Throne Speech also commits the government to fund the rest of its campaign commitments starting in the 2021-22 budget. A copy of the speech may be found on the Saskatchewan government website.
