The new government is set to deliver its widely-anticipated first budget on Tuesday, March 22nd.

Prior to her current appointment, she was a Senior Officer at the Bank of Canada, overseeing the development of monetary policy advice in the Canadian Economic Analysis Department. Harriet has held a number of positions at the Department of Finance and Privy Council Office, working on international and domestic policy issues.
