Flaherty will speaking at 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET. CBCNews.ca will livestream his remarks.
This year's budget introduced a new Search and Rescue Volunteers tax credit, available to those who perform at least 200 hours of service during a year. It offers a 15 per cent non-refundable tax credit on an amount of $3,000 for ground, air and marine search and rescue volunteers.
Flaherty will also likely field a number of questions from the media about income splitting, amid the brouhaha that erupted following his seemingly off-the-cuff remarks on Wednesday suggesting the government might back away from that election promise.
