Alberta Budget 2017

On Thursday, March 16, 2017, the Government of Alberta revealed the 2017 budget. The government in the past has recognized the importance of investing in infrastructure. ACA has always said that infrastructure investment is a way to keep good trade jobs in Alberta during difficult times in other parts of the economy.

The Government has increased the capital plan for the next 4 years by over a billion dollars to build much needed schools, health care facilities, and roads. That additional $1 billion means half a billion dollars in wages for hard working Alberta's across the province. Half a billion dollars supports 6600 full time construction jobs in a year.

CCA on the Federal Budget

On March 22, 2017, the federal budget entitled: Building A Strong Middle Class was presented by Finance Minister Bill Morneau. Innovation was the theme of the day, with key focus on infrastructure, housing strategy, skills, health, and gender balance.

This year was very much a ‘Stay the course’ budget with very few major changes of policy direction. In fact, the anticipated large-scale tax measures were nowhere to be found. There were also no changes to small business tax from the pre-budget framework. There were also small tweaks to corporate tax; mostly technical in nature.
