Chief Minister and Treasurer’s Message

Chief Minister Andrew Barr

Canberra is growing, and the ACT Government is working hard to ensure our services and infrastructure keep getting better for everyone who lives here.

We're growing our investment in frontline healthcare, schools and municipal services, while planning for Canberra’s needs in the future with new hospitals and Walk in Centres, transport infrastructure like Stage 2 of Light Rail and more land supply for new homes in both our town centres and suburban estates.

The ACT Government has worked hard to return the Budget to balance after a tough few years for the Territory’s economy. We want to ensure it stays there by responsibly balancing new initiatives with the need for further investment in our core services as Canberra continues to grow.

That’s why we want to hear your views on which initiatives, services or programs the Government should prioritise through the 2019-20 Budget.

You can share your ideas and feedback through YourSay where you can take a survey or send us an email submission by 31 October 2018.

We look forward to hearing your views about the 2019-20 Budget and how we can keep delivering a better Canberra.

Andrew Barr MLA
ACT Chief Minister and Treasurer
