The National Post - $10B federal surplus higher than expected (25 May 2007) The federal government reported another fat multi-billion surplus for the 2006-07 fiscal year which ended March 31, suggesting that it remains in healthy financial shape despite its highly touted tax cuts. The surplus was on track to hit nearly C$10-billion, preliminary Finance Department figures show. The surplus is C$500-million more than what was projected in the March budget. Under a government commitment, all of the final surplus will go towards debt reduction, and all the interest savings from that reduction, will be put towards income tax cuts. The report noted that prior to subtracting the C$4-billion in environmental and health care spending announced in the budget, the surplus was a whopping C$13.7-billion, up from the C$12-billion surplus a year earlier. Tax revenues were up, reflecting strong job and wage growth and ongoing corporate profit growth From a Reuters Canada report on this: Canada is the only member of the Group of Seven rich nations currently running a budget surplus.
