Alberta’s Finance Minister says there has to be changes in spending and delivery of programs going forward.

Travis Toews spoke to Medicine Hat Chamber members about the recent release of the Mackinnon report and the upcoming budget.

Toews says everyone is looking for ways to cut spending and improve efficiency.

Toews says, “Every ministry is taking a look at their management structure right now.  I mentioned that Alberta Health Services is undergoing a performance review and we expexct that there will be efficiencies, redundancies, perhaps better delivery models identified in that review.  So, every ministry is conducting a review right now.”

While a provincial budget still needs to be brought down, Toews would only say that will be done sometime later this fall.
