Budget Talks 2019-2020

We want Nova Scotians to help shape government’s budget for the 2019-2020 fiscal year and future budgets. Send us your ideas by Monday, 31 December.

Letter from the Minister

Dear Nova Scotians,

Through careful planning and diligence over the past four years, the province has moved toward fiscal sustainability during a period of challenging global and national economic conditions. This fiscal discipline enables government to invest in quality health care and education, to make communities stronger and to grow the economy.

During the next few weeks, I want Nova Scotians to help shape the 2019-2020 Budget -- and future budgets.

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


Karen Casey
Minister of Finance and Treasury Board
