Budget 2005 - President's Updates

April 14, 2005 CAPE Members at Statistics Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada to be unaffected by 2005 Budget.
In keeping with my promise to keep the membership abreast of my consultations with departments regarding the potential impact of the 2005 Budget exercise on CAPE members, we have more good news.
Following consultations with the Deputy Heads of Fisheries and Oceans, Canadian Heritage, Department of National Defense as well as the Chief Statistician, Statistics Canada, I was very pleased to be reassured that our members in these organizations can expect no negative impact as a result of the '05 Budget.
I will continue to keep you apprised of progress in my consultations with other Deputy Heads.
