Albertans have their say on new rules for the province’s financial decisions

Edmonton… The Alberta government is asking Albertans to help set the boundaries for spending, saving and funding infrastructure through a public consultation called Dollars and Sense.

“Delivering on Premier Redford’s commitment, I will be leading a conversation about the government’s financial planning to ensure that decisions are in line with Albertans’ priorities,” said Kyle Fawcett, Associate Minister of Finance. “Dollars and Sense delivers on this commitment – I hope people take the opportunity to share their opinions about how we can shape our province’s future prosperity.”

Albertans can participate by visiting www.dollarsandsense.alberta.ca to review information and answer questions about the factors that make up our fiscal ground rules, such as:

  • when the province should save;
  • whether a dedicated account for infrastructure should be created; and
  • what the Alberta Heritage Trust Fund should be used for.

Minister Fawcett will also be hosting a series of panel discussions with approximately 100 leaders from the financial and banking sector, the business world, academics, think tanks and other organizations. The panels will be held in Edmonton and Calgary during the week of September 17 to 21. Panel discussion guides being used during the sessions will be available on the Dollars and Sense website.

“Albertans will have the opportunity to answer the same questions as those taking part in the panels,” said Fawcett. “It’s important to hear what all Albertans have to say on how they want their government to manage the province’s finances and savings, including experts.”

The deadline for online submissions is October 31. A report summarizing the results from both the online survey and discussion at the expert panels will be released later in the fall.

Also in October, the Alberta government will be conducting public sessions across the province to hear from Albertans on their priorities for Budget 2013.
