Making your ideas count

The B.C. provincial budget is a combination of the revenues taken in from taxes and other sources, and spending on programs, services and infrastructure for British Columbians. Public sector compensation accounts for more than half the provincial budget.

Government is required by law to balance the budget by 2013/14. A balanced budget helps keep our debt down and protects British Columbia's AAA credit rating.

This budget simulator is for educational purposes and we hope it will help start a conversation with British Columbians about their budget priorities.
