Fact Sheet: 2014 Federal Budget Analysis

This Fact Sheet highlights spending measures outlined in the 2014 federal budget that affect Edmontonians with low and modest incomes.

By keeping program spending flat and allowing revenues to grow in line with the economy, the federal government forecasts a deficit of $2.9 billion in 2014-15 and plans a return to a surplus budget by 2015-16.
