OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said on Monday he will present the federal government's 2014 budget to Parliament on Feb 11 at 4 p.m. (2100 GMT).

The budget is expected to show that the fiscal deficit, which now stands at about 1 percent of gross domestic product, will be eliminated in 2015.
