MP’s REPORT: Pre-Budget Consultation

By Kyle Peterson, MP

Happy New Year. I sincerely hope everyone had a chance to spend some quality time with friends and family over the holiday period. I also hope you share my excitement and optimism for the upcoming year.
On Monday of this week, the House returned, and I travelled back to Ottawa after a busy few weeks in here in Aurora and Newmarket.
Over the last month, I have had the opportunity to visit a number of local businesses.
I continue to be impressed by the number of fascinating companies, right here in our own backyard.
As diverse as these businesses are, one similarity struck me: they are all doing innovative work, focussing on the future.
The entrepreneurs behind these businesses share an optimism for Canada’s economic future.
I remain steadfast in my commitment to these local companies, and others, to help them create great jobs right here in our community and to help ensure that they continue to innovate.
I also was pleased to meet with a number of constituents and community groups in our office. It is always rewarding to gain the insight from others when we develop public policy.
Our government is committed to consulting with Canadians as we develop the 2016 Budget. Along with other York Region MP colleagues, we hosted a Pre-Budget Consultation in the York Region Administrative Centre.
The input from the participants was quite valuable.
I am holding another session on February 10 at the Aurora Seniors’ Centre. Please contact my office for details. Also, you may provide any input into Budget 2016 online at We want to hear from you!
I will be back from Ottawa this weekend, and I am happy to invite you to our New Year’s Family Skate on January 30 at 5.45 p.m. to 7.45 p.m. at the Magna Centre in Newmarket.
Please come by and enjoy some free public skating.
I look forward to seeing you there.
As a reminder, our office has been open since mid-December, and my staff is happy to serve you.
We are located at 16600 Bayview Avenue, Suite 202. Our phone number is 905-953-7515 and email is
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you need any information or help.
I hope you find the upcoming year a fulfilling one.
All my best for 2016!
