Government is taking action to reduce expenses and create a long-term sustainable fiscal plan ahead of the release of Budget 2015.
Actions include containing costs for the remainder of the current fiscal year. This includes restraining spending on discretionary grants, travel and training as well as hiring.
Budget 2015 will be released on March 26 and will require tough, disciplined fiscal decisions to weather the current low price of oil while also protecting core services that Albertans require.
