Budget 2020 maintains budgets for health, education and core social services. We remain focused on creating jobs, growing our economy, and streamlining programs to ensure a sustainable future.

Our plan to get spending under control is working – we’re on track to balance the budget by 2022-23 and we’re bringing down the deficit faster than expected. We continue to stand up for Alberta by seeking a fair deal and increased provincial power within confederation.

Revenue

Total revenue is forecast to remain flat at $50 billion in 2020-21 and then grow to $58.1 billion in 2022-23. Growth is projected to grow 7.8% in 2022-23 as pipelines come online, oil sands production continues to expand and new investment increases and oil prices and exports rise.

Tax plan

We are committed to reducing the tax burden on Albertans and creating a business climate that supports job creators. This low-rate, broad-based tax approach will level the playing field for all job creators, rather than a select few and continue to make Alberta one of the most competitive places to invest in North America.
