ESPC News: Budget Factsheet Released!

The Alberta Budget 2019 was tabled in the Alberta legislature yesterday. To help the public make sense of what’s contained in the budget, Edmonton Social Planning Council put together a two-page fACTsheet summarizing some highlights of the new budget.

This fACTsheet covers how the new budget will impact several programs of relevance to communities and families, which include child benefits, affordable housing, childcare, employment and income support, addiction and mental health, seniors, drug coverage, education, and affordable transportation.

The fACT sheet can now be downloaded here and will be available on our website this weekend.
