Members of the public will have opportunities to make their voices heard and provide input informing Budget 2020.
An online survey with questions on Albertans’ spending and saving priorities, as well as ideas for job creation and growing Alberta’s economy, is open until Feb. 7.
Government will host two telephone town hall meetings on Jan. 27 and Jan. 28. These town halls give Albertans an opportunity to speak directly to the finance minister and provide feedback to be used in the development of Budget 2020. More information on the telephone town halls and how to participate can be found at alberta.ca/budgetconsultation.
“Leading up to Budget 2019, we heard from more than 4,000 people online and almost 35,000 people during our telephone town halls. Albertans demonstrated that they have incredible insight into the choices we must make together to create jobs, get out of debt and grow our economy. As we continue on this path, I want to hear your thoughts. We made a good start in Budget 2019 and we need to keep that momentum going.”
The public input will help inform Budget 2020, scheduled to be released this spring.
