Alberta’s Fiscal Picture
Alberta is growing faster than it has at any time in its history. With that success comes enormous pressure on government to keep up with infrastructure demands and other spending priorities.
Despite the challenges, the province’s first quarter fiscal update detailed improving revenues and reduced capital borrowing requirements — mainly due to higher energy forecasts and stronger corporate income taxes.
With the second quarter fiscal update set to be released in the coming weeks, softening oil prices are increasing pressure on the province’s bottom line.
On December 3rd join Alberta Enterprise Group at the Edmonton Petroleum club for an update from Finance Minister Robin Campbell on the Alberta government’s fiscal picture and the outlook for the remainder of the 2014/15 fiscal year.
