Alternative Federal Budget in Brief 2014


The Alternative Federal Budget is prepared and presented on the basis that balanced budgets should not be the main focus of the federal government. The AFB is much more concerned with slow growth, a weak labour market, and income inequality than the federal government’s historically low (and falling) debt levels.

If there is any debt problem in the Canadian federation, it is surely with households and not the federal government. Without breaking the bank, the AFB focuses on job creation and reducing inequality, while providing humanitarian programs like affordable child care and improved health care.
