This Fact Sheet highlights spending measures outlined in the 2014 federal budget that affect Edmontonians with low and modest incomes. While the budget focuses on the fiscal year that runs from April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015, it also contains spending and revenue projections for the following four years. 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.
