Last week, Canadian federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau tabled a pre-election budget designed to calm Canadians worried about retiring with financial security, getting the skills they need to land new jobs, or being able to afford a first home.

Morneau’s fourth budget — a springboard for the Liberal platform heading into the fall election campaign — delivers few big-ticket, signature programs but offers several new lower-cost programs that target key electoral constituencies: millennials, workers, businesses and seniors.

A notable highlight of the budget includes:

Working with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities to offer funds to support retrofits, such as hot water systems or rooftop solar panels, that make homes and businesses more energy efficient.
