How It Works
In the following pages, you'll be presented with examples of government spending on programs and services across all provincial departments. You will also be presented with various ways governments collect revenue. Then the choice is yours - what do you cut and/or what revenue do you raise?
You'll be given a brief description of each program, service and revenue stream, and some reasons for and against making changes. The reasons are not meant to persuade you one way or the other, rather to give you insight into the some of the pros and cons of instituting budgetary change.
As you go through the tool and consider which programs or services should be cut, the ticker on the side will update, letting you know whether your choices have resulted in sufficient cuts or revenue increases to balance the budget. When you're finished, you can share your budget on social media by clicking the 'share' buttons on the last page.
