Budget lays foundation for investments in priorities

FREDERICTON (GNB) – The 2016-17 provincial budget tabled today in the legislative assembly outlines plans to put the province’s finances on the right track, protect education and health care and invest in job creation.

“This budget marks the close of the Strategic Program Review process and will set a foundation that our province can build upon so we can invest in New Brunswick’s priorities and create jobs,” said Finance Minister Roger Melanson. “After an exhaustive, inclusive and transparent consultation process with New Brunswickers about the choices we faced, we chose to protect education and health care and reduce the size of government because that’s what we heard from New Brunswickers.”
