Sask. 2024-25 budget includes $273.2M projected deficit, no tax cuts or increases

WNews 1 Min Read

Saskatchewan’s Finance Minister Donna Harpauer delivered her final budget on Wednesday, projecting a $273.2 million deficit for 2024-25.

Harpauer, who has announced she will not seek re-election, said this budget is not exactly the one she was hoping to go out on.

“I would have loved to have ended [with a] budget that was balanced and was able to do a tax reduction. However, it is the budget I am comfortable with,” Harpauer said.

She said her caucus colleagues and the premier wanted to prioritize “substantive increases,” which she called “the right thing to do right now.”

The government branded this budget as “Classrooms, Care, and Communities.”
