Alberta's finance minister says he is hopeful about the province's fiscal future, but Alberta still has a long road to recovery following the collapse of oil prices, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic fallout. made a post On the morning of Nov. 24, the province released its mid-year fiscal update, giving Albertans a look at how the pandemic has impacted the bottom line. Finance Minister Travis Toews said there is reason to be optimistic about the update. "I can't say definitively that our toughest days are behind us, but what I can say is we are starting to see signs of some economic recovery, so that is positive," Toews said. Toews cited the improved forecast for the province's deficit as a reason for optimism. In August, when the province delivered its quarterly update, the province had projected Alberta would face a $24.2-billion deficit, but now that projection sits at $21.3 billion. That's due to increased revenues from the last quarter, investments performing better than expected, higher revenue from gaming, and federal government transfers. The revenue forecast for the current budget cycle is $41.4 billion, almost $3 billion higher than last quarter. Revenues from non-renewable resources are forecasted to drop by $3.4 billion to $1.7 billion.
