Key information

In focus

Budget

Budget 2022 is moving Alberta forward by building health system capacity, getting more Albertans working, and balancing the budget.

Limiting cost-plus contracts

The new policy fulfils a mandate to limit the use of cost-plus contracts, ensuring fiscal accountability and making prudent use of public money.

Infrastructure Accountability Act

New legislation will help the Government of Alberta make decisions to deliver infrastructure projects, such as schools and hospitals, based on legislated criteria and long-term planning.

Capital maintenance and renewal

The government is doubling the capital maintenance and renewal (CMR) funding in 2020-21 from $937 million to $1.9 billion. These smaller projects (like repairing roofs and replacing boilers) are creating jobs.
