Katrine Conroy says her government's focus is on helping British Columbians make ends meet during a difficult economic time.

The province has opened up consultation on Budget 2024.

“As we plan for the future, we will continue to make choices that work for people,” said Katrine Conroy, Minister of Finance.

“We’re focused on what matters to people across our province. Our annual budget consultation helps us hear from them and make sure our budget reflects their priorities, so we can help everyone build a good life in British Columbia.”

The province says the budget focuses on keeping people safe and healthy in their communities, helping with costs, creating more accessible and affordable housing opportunities through the Homes for People plan, and advancing B.C.’s strong, sustainable economy.

The consultation is led by the all-party Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services. Each year, the committee holds a provincewide consultation about the next provincial budget and presents a final report with recommendations to the legislative assembly reflecting their recommendations.

People can participate by completing the written submission form on the government’s website, with consultation closing on June 16th.
