“Federal public service workers want to deliver on commitments made in the federal budget. That requires departments having the resources they need to serve Canadians,” said Robyn Benson, PSAC National President.

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives today released its 2016 Alternative Federal Budget (AFB). 

The AFB projects a federal deficit of $29.2 billion for 2016-17 when Liberal platform measures are taken into account. It also delivers a blueprint showing how the government could take on a $37.9 billion deficit and still maintain Canada’s debt-to-GDP ratio.

The AFB proposes to reverse cuts made to the public service and introduce a program review process to make the public service more transparent and adaptive to the needs of everyone, to be ramped up to $2 billion per year.
