Your views helped us plan Budget 2022. Alberta’s economy is showing encouraging signs of recovery and growth, but there is still work to do to further diversify, strengthen our workforce, grow our resources and help everyday Albertans.
Your input helped us better understand your priorities for your family, business and community.
While the province’s fiscal outlook improved dramatically since the start of the year, Alberta is still spending more money than it brings in and we will pay about $2.5 billion this year in debt servicing costs. If we can bring the debt down, we will be able to focus more on public services.
The budget decisions we make now will help Albertans get ahead while making our economy stronger and ensuring our core services are efficient and affordable over the long term.
