The COVID-19 global pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges for people all over the world, including right here in Saskatchewan. Your Saskatchewan Party government has taken strong and decisive action to protect public health and support jobs and our economic recovery. The 2020 Provincial Budget reflects this commitment, with record investments in our health care system and increased funding to our education system. It invests in people, with record investments in mental health and addictions funding and more support for our most vulnerable people. It also invests in critical infrastructure like hospitals, schools, highways, municipal and Crown corporation infrastructure to the tune of $3.1 billion.
In order to support individuals and businesses to deal with the impacts of the fight against the pandemic, a number of initiatives were brought in. These include the Saskatchewan Temporary Wage Supplement Program, the Saskatchewan Small Business Emergency Payment Program and the Saskatchewan Tourism Sector Support Program.
This has been a challenging year for the people of Saskatchewan but your Saskatchewan Party government remains committed to supporting the people of this great province. If myself or my office can ever be of any assistance to you, please feel free to contact my Meadow Lake constituency office at (306) 236-6669 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
