Continuing Our Strong Fiscal Record

Finance Minister Karen Casey gave a budget update today that shows our continued committed to a balanced budget. As Liberals, we’re proud of our government’s fiscal achievements that have resulted in three balanced budgets in a row, all while investing in health care, education, early years, communities, and the economy.

There are signs that show our future in bright: employment, population, and exports all continue to grow. We are also welcoming new Canadians and delivering programs that help connect more young people to the workforce.

Earlier this year, Nova Scotia received its highest-ever credit rating by Standard & Poor’s, a key bond-rating agency. The upgrade to a double-A minus provide modest savings in debt costs.
