Budget Talks 2018-19

Dear Nova Scotians,

The province’s move towards fiscal sustainability has been achieved through careful planning and diligence over the past four years, during a period of challenging global and national economic conditions. This fiscal discipline gives government the ability to make investments in quality health care, in the classroom, to make communities stronger, and to grow the economy.

During the next few weeks, I want Nova Scotians to help shape the 2018-2019 Budget -- and future budgets.

Not every idea can be realized in this year's budget, but every voice matters. How you can participate can be found following this letter. I look forward to hearing from you.


Karen Casey
Minister of Finance and Treasury Board
