More than ever, Canada needs a budget that allows us to take back our future and to restore a sense of the public good — a sense that we can do better togetherrather than continuing on the dead-end path of austerity and market-driven “solutions” that don’t benefit the majority of Canadians.
Since 1994, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives has produced such a vision. Each year, the Alternative Federal Budget (AFB) is created with the participation and support of researchers, activists, and a broad spectrum of civil society leadership — representing millions of people living in Canada.
The AFB is about demythologizing budget-making. It's about public accountability and collaboration. And it's about the millions of people living and working in Canada. This alternative vision demonstrates in a concrete and compelling way that by working together, we can do better.
On March 12, the CCPA will release the 2013 Alternative Federal Budget. And this year, you can help!
