Growth and Change
In the last 20 years, our population has grown at a unprecedented rate - and it's not anticipated to slow down. A growing population brings great opportunities, but also increases our spending on new teachers, new infrastructure and expanded healthcare services.
 
We need to maintain the level of services that we are known for as a province, and are committed to ensuring all Albertans have access to the same standard of comfort and care. This is why we need to make sure our budget is properly balanced and managed to address the needs of Alberta's growing population.
