Budget 2015

Education is a top priority for our government, and we are demonstrating our commitment to Alberta’s students through the investments outlined in Budget 2015.

Through Budget 2015, we are providing stable and predictable funding to school authorities. This includes providing authorities with funding for every Kindergarten to Grade 12 student.

In 2015-16, Education’s total budget is $8.9 billion. This includes $7.6 billion in consolidated operating expenses as well as $1.3 billion in capital commitments.

The $1.3 billion in school capital funding will be allocated for the construction of new schools, modernizations of existing schools, a robust modular classroom program, and capital maintenance and renewal funding to support the life-cycle management of existing schools.
