The Provincial Government today published feedback from its pre-budget consultations. Reports on feedback received through online consultations, in person sessions and written submissions are now available on the Department of Finance website.
In total, government received over 300 submissions during the course of consultations. As in recent years, online consultations remain the most popular option, with over 200 submissions.
Reports have been shared with government departments, and are currently being evaluated as part of ongoing budget preparation.
“I would like to thank members of the public and stakeholder groups for their participation in the 2020 pre-budget process. We will evaluate this year’s feedback along with feedback we’ve received in consultations from previous years as we make decisions around ways to reduce spending, increase revenues and which priority areas to focus on for Budget 2020 decisions.”
Honourable Tom Osborne
Minister of Finance and President of Treasury Board
