Making Choices

Help plan the next provincial budget.

Submit Your Budget

Manitoba needs a strong fiscal plan to improve our province. We are committed to eliminating wasteful government spending and creating a province with lower taxes, better services and a stronger economy. Governments must make choices when determining priorities for spending, just like every Manitoban does when creating a household budget.

Each increase or decrease in funding has an effect on other areas of Manitoba's budget. For example, an increase in funding for health care will mean there is less money for other areas of government services, like education, funding for child care or the costs to maintain and repair roads. Similarly, decreases in one program area can free up resources for other higher priorities that may involve spending on programs, taxes or fees or deficit and debt reduction.

To better understand what you think is important, we want you to build your own provincial budget focused on your priorities. We also want your suggestions on how provincial spending and revenue should be prioritized, as well as your thoughts on innovative ways to save money while ensuring services are available and what efficiencies might be possible.
