Albertans need public services. They must be strengthened, not cut.

Alberta has a government revenue shortage that must be fixed to protect and revitalize our public services.

Resource revenues should be saved for future generations, not relied upon to fund government’s basic operations.

Alberta's revenue shortage is best solved by renovating our tax system with changes to personal income taxes and a sales tax.

  • "To ensure essential public services, including equitable and accessible health care, are there when Albertans need them, our province must develop sustainable revenues that are not subject to the whims of international commodity markets. This is especially so when Alberta's economy depends so heavily on revenues from a single resource."

    Heather Smith
    President, United Nurses of Alberta (UNA)

  • “HSAA’s members are health care experts who work on the front lines and know better than anyone that there’s nothing left to cut. The health care cupboard is bare. If Alberta doesn’t find a way to create new revenue, front-line public care will have to be slashed and the effect on the work our members do, and on patients, will be devastating. We need revenue reform and we need it now.”

    Mike Parker
    President, Health Sciences Association of Alberta (HSAA)

  • “It's time the government commits to reducing its reliance on non-renewable resource revenue by applying a more responsible tax structure to ensure the province has the steady revenue needed to protect the public services millions of Albertans rely on. Healthy investment in public services, combined with a responsible approach to revenue reform, is what’s needed to support a growing province like Alberta."

    Jason Heistad
    Executive Secretary-Treasurer, Alberta Union of Provincial Employees (AUPE)

  • "Barring a large and sustained recovery in the province's natural resource revenues, which seems unlikely, it is difficult to anticipate the residents of the province with the highest incomes being satisfied with a low level of public services. If so, increased taxes are inevitable."
