Finance Minister Donates ‘New Balance’ Shoes for Budget Day

Yesterday in partnership with New Balance Canada, Brands for Canada and Finance Minister Sousa visited Gerard Family Resource Centre to donate 100 pairs of new shoes to local children. In case you’re not familiar, there’s a tradition with Minsters of Finance to wear or purchase new shoes on budget day.  The Gerard Family Resource Centre is an organization supporting children, parents, and caregivers in the community.

Minister Sousa and his wife Zenny helped the children pick out various sizes from ~100 pairs of New Balance footwear.


Minister Sousa will be wearing his own ‘New Balance’ shoes as he delivers the budget today in Ontario. He is set balance the budget with a promise for new childcare funding and affordable housing among other items.
