A moderate and responsible course for Manitoba, based on reducing taxes and restraining government spending while investing appropriately in front-line services.
That’s how Manitoba Finance Minister Cameron Friesen describes the 2017 provincial budget released today.
Outlined in the budget is an overall strategic infrastructure investment forecast to reach more than 1.7 billion dollars in 2017-18.
This includes 747 million for roads, highways, bridges and flood protection, 641 million for health, education and housing infrastructure, and up to 370 million for municipal, local and other provincial infrastructure.
Manitobans will also see no tax increases and no new taxes, with continued investment in the services citizens depend upon.
