Islanders invited to participate in pre-budget consultations
Pre-budget consultations are beginning online and across the province, says Finance Minister Allen Roach.“Government continues its work to balance the 2016-17 budget and we need to hear from Islanders about how we can reach this goal,” Minister Roach said. “We need input on what programs and services are most important to them, where savings can be found, and how we can increase revenue and grow our economy.”
Feedback on the budget can be provided online at www.gov.pe.ca/budgetsubmissions until February 18 and at four public consultation sessions from 2 to 4 p.m. at the following locations (call 902-368-5501 to pre-register for each session):
