  • Balancing Alberta’s budget through an expanded Results-Based Budgeting process that challenges every dollar government spends;
  • Strengthening front-line health care and driving down wait times by building additional family care clinics;

  • Working, every day, to open new markets for Alberta’s resources and products.

“Albertans elected our government to lead in changing times, and with this team we will meet the challenges associated with our enormous population growth head-on. I’m excited about the work ahead in building Alberta – for the 4 million Albertans today, and the million more we’ll welcome over the next 10 years.”
