Pre-budget consultation

The Department of Finance and Treasury Board has launched the pre-budget consultation ahead of the 2023-24 provincial budget. The department is asking Nova Scotians to share their thoughts on the solutions of government advances in areas like healthcare, housing, the economy and other priority areas.

I encourage you to have your say and become involved in the provincial budget process. Your voice matters and this is a great opportunity to share your ideas and let the government know what priorities are important to you. Submissions will be accepted until February 3, 2023.

The government has the power to implement a tax credit for activities that benefit physical and mental health. Help us put pressure on the government to end the tax on gym related memberships.

You can submit your suggestions by:

  • emailing
  • tweeting @NSFinance
  • mailing a submission to: Department of Finance and Treasury Board, ATTN: Budget Consultation, P.O. Box 187, Halifax N.S. B3J 2N3
  • or reach out to my office.
