The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives' Alternative Federal Budget (AFB), now in its 26th year, calls for urgent policy priorities that would ensure a publicly led, inclusive pandemic recovery. 

This project is a collaboration among organizations and researchers from a variety of sectors, populations, and areas of expertise including human rights, labour, environmental protection, anti-poverty, arts and culture, social development, child development, international development, women, Indigenous peoples, the faith-based community, students, teachers, education, and health care workers.

Together, they have created the AFB recognizing that the federal government must step up to ensure a just, equitable and sustainable post-pandemic Canada. 

Among the key issues in the AFB: implementing universal public child care, reforming Canada's income security system, addressing the housing crisis, strengthening and expanding the existing health care system, stewarding a just transition away from the oil and gas economy, and moving forward on reconciliation.
