Dear Community members,
We have been requested by federal officials ( i.e., Finance Canada & Innovation, Science and Economic Development Ministry) to create one page legislative briefs to help guide policy responses to recent CATA Tax & Finance advocacy ( see background: http://cata.ca/2017/innovation-funds-cutting/ )
Please note the first point in the first one-pager relates to who is responsible for what and what is the process. This is a question we are hearing from CATA’s social groups and advisors. Lack of clarity leaves many very uncomfortable as it can be interpreted as simply confusion in the ministries – or as passing the buck.
Please download and review the one page legislative briefs at https://tinyurl.com/ydyoo9k4 , and then circulate to your peer networks, and also reach out to CATA CEO John Reid at firstname.lastname@example.org to join CATA’s community advocacy mission.
Also note that we have provided a 2 Question Survey for community members to offer guidance to the CATA advocacy team. Please go to: https://goo.gl/forms/IlF86guGqyO9FJCq1
