House of Assembly Opens


The government enters the spring sitting of the legislature focused on investing in opportunities for growth, supporting youth and young families, and investing to support older Nova Scotians.

The third session of the 62nd general assembly resumed today, April 25.

Premier Stephen McNeil said a provincial budget that invests in Nova Scotians’ priorities will be a focal point while government also advances the Accessibility Act.

“We are here to invest in opportunities for growth, invest in new ideas for a better economy, and support our families and communities,” said Premier McNeil.

He said the budget, to be tabled April 27, will take steps to reduce the tax burden faced by small business, set red tape reduction targets, and make investments to support the recently released action plan for an aging population.

Premier McNeil said he also hopes for a speedy passage of the Accessibility Act.

“Yesterday we had advocates ask for this bill to be passed quickly,” he said. “The disabled community has waited 15 years for this legislation. We hope we can work with all members to pass this bill.”
