2021-2022年加拿大聯邦預算公佈了$ 1,014億加元的支出,其中2020年的預算赤字高達$ 3,542億加元, 2021-22年度財政預算下降到$ 1,547億加元。

預算的重點是流行性疾病的恢復和抵禦能力,並在三個關鍵領域進行支出:提高聯邦最低工資,兒童保育計劃撥款300億加元美元和清潔技術投資176億加元。其中,加拿大聯邦在綠色復甦計劃中的176億加元投資包括:

•計劃在未來幾個月內啟動聯邦綠色債券框架,使投資者能夠為加拿大的氣候變化倡議提供資金;
•在未來五年內提供44億加元,用於為環保型家居改造項目提供高達4萬加元的無息貸款
•製造零排放技術的公司(例如太陽能電池板和電動公交車)的公司和小型企業所得稅稅率在10年內減少50%。
•在五年中,還將利用5,600萬加元與美國等國家合作,制定零排放車輛充電和加油站的標準。

加拿大副總理Chrystia Freeland還宣布了從現在開始並將在未來七年內繼續向戰略創新基金注資72億加元的計劃,其中包括用於生命科學,汽車,航空航天和農業領域的項目的特定金額。其中,50億美元將用於該基金的“淨零加速器”,以支持旨在幫助減少國內溫室氣體排放的項目。

但是,由於製造商繼續嘗試擴大規模並在沒有支持系統的情況下變得具有全球競爭力,因此預算中缺少任何重大的技術投資計劃。 CME(加拿大製造商和出口商)總裁兼首席執行官丹尼斯·達比(Dennis Darby)對此表示贊同。

“聯邦政府錯失了採用更全面方法的機會,這將有助於提高我們的製造商的競爭力。今天宣布的許多措施都是積極的,並且會有所幫助,但那裡的措施不足以推動增長和推動長期增長。”

Federal budget unveiled, significant investments for cleantech initiatives

Budget announces accelerated capital write-offs, extended wage subsidies, and help for companies transitioning to net-zero goals.

The 2021-2022 federal budget unveiled $101.4B in new spending, with a projected deficit of $354.2B for 2020 and dropping to $154.7 billion in the current 2021-22 fiscal year.

The focus of the budget was on pandemic recovery and resiliency with spending in three key areas: raising the federal minimum wage, $30B towards a national childcare plan, and $17.6B towards cleantech investments.

This last commitment no doubt came as a welcome announcement for many ailing manufacturers in a variety of cleantech-related industries.

The federal government’s $17.6B investment in a green recovery plan includes:
• A plan to launch in the coming months a federal green bond framework allowing investors to help finance Canada’s climate change initiatives;
• $4.4 billion over the next five years to offer interest-free loans of up to $40,000 for environmentally-friendly home retrofit projects
• A 50 per cent 10-year reduction on corporate and small business income tax rates for companies manufacturing zero-emissions technologies, such as solar panels and electric buses.
• $56 million over five years has also been tapped to work with countries like the United States on bringing in standards for zero-emission vehicle charging and refuelling stations.

Chrystia Freeland also announced plans to put another $7.2 billion into the Strategic Innovation Fund starting now and continuing for the next seven years, including specific amounts to go into projects within the life sciences, automotive, aerospace, and agriculture sectors. Of this, $5 billion will be funnelled towards the fund’s Net Zero Accelerator, which supports projects to help reduce domestic greenhouse gas emissions.

However, missing from the budget was any significant plan for investment in technology as manufacturers continue to try and scale-up and become globally competitive without a support system in place. This sentiment was echoed by Dennis Darby, President and CEO of CME (Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters).

“The federal government missed an opportunity to have a more comprehensive approach which would have helped to make our manufacturers more competitive. A lot of the measures announced today are positive and will help, but there is not enough in there to move the needle and drive long-term growth.”
