Vision for the future
Alberta's vision is to have stable and affordable public services by 2025, by saving responsibly and creating a legacy of advantage and opportunity for future generations.
Changes to government spending outlined in the budget will bring per capita spending closer to the national average. This will be done over the next 3 to 4 years while protecting core services and ensuring access for those in need.
Tax and revenue changes
Alberta will create more long-term revenue stability by lessening our reliance on volatile oil prices. Budget 2015 proposes several tax measures. These changes will protect lower-income Albertans and maintain Alberta's standing as the lowest tax jurisdiction in Canada.
