Stop Bill 18!

May 22, 2024

Bill 18 gives the provincial government the power to prevent Albertans and Albertan organizations from applying for Federal grants and programmes.

Alberta Bill 18, known as the Provincial Priorities Act, 2024, is a legislative proposal that mandates provincial oversight and approval of any contractual or collaborative agreements between provincial entities and the federal government. This includes a broad range of institutions and bodies within the province, including universities and colleges. The bill allows provincial politicians and bureaucrats a veto over whether Albertans can accept their own tax dollars back from Ottawa.
