Budget 2018 - Manitobans Making Choices

Keeping our promises. Real progress for Manitobans.

The Manitoba government's plan to fix our province's finances, repair our services and rebuild our economy is working - and when a plan is working, you stick with the plan.

A budget that reflects your priorities

This year, almost 35,000 Manitobans took part in the province's pre-budget consultations.

Budget 2018 reflects their concerns, their priorities and their hopes.

It delivers the largest tax cut in Manitoba history and, at the same time, removes thousands of modest-income Manitobans from the tax rolls.

It also continues to fix Manitoba's finances with a $319 million reduction to the deficit, even as taxes are being cut and record investments are being made in important services.

The Manitoba government is on schedule to reduce the PST within the next two years and deliver a balanced budget in the very near future.

Whether you are a small business owner, a student, a senior or a working Manitoban, Budget 2018 is designed with you in mind.
