Budget 2022

Budget 2022 is moving Alberta forward by strengthening our health-care system, getting more Albertans to work, and bringing Alberta’s balance sheet back into the black.

The budget builds a strong health-care system to keep fighting the pandemic and expand capacity for all Albertans on a permanent basis. Alberta Health’s total operating expense budget will grow by a total of $1.8 billion by 2024-25.

A new initiative called Alberta at Work will help Albertans take advantage of our economic growth and prosperity and give them more opportunities to build their skills, pursue their passions and support themselves and their families.

For the first time in over a decade, Alberta is presenting a balanced budget and targeting modest surpluses for each of the next 3 fiscal years.

Economic outlook

Alberta’s economic recovery from the global pandemic and the oil price crisis far exceeded expectations last year, and the province’s growth will be at or near the top of all provinces this year.
