Atlantic Chamber of Commerce feels 2016-17 Budget should have done more
The Atlantic Chamber of Commerce (ACC) expressed concern that today’s budget did not accomplish
last year’s goal of revenue and expenditure balance. The projected $9.6M deficit moves PEI in the right
direction but the budget only provides limited support for economic growth and investment as it attempts
to achieve surplus in 2017.
