Alberta Capital Finance Authority
2019 Provincial Budget Update
The Government of Alberta (GoA) released the 2019 Provincial Budget on Thursday, October 24. In the budget, government indicates it will introduce legislation to dissolve the Alberta Capital Finance Authority (ACFA). The program of providing low-cost loans to local authorities would be continued by the province. (For more detail, please refer to Page 168 of the 2019–23 Fiscal Plan).
The dissolution of the ACFA would not occur immediately but in phases. ACFA would continue to grant new loans and administer existing loans until the transition is complete. At the same time, government and ACFA staff would identify, and implement where possible, the actions required to transfer lending and loan administration responsibilities to government.
ACFA is working diligently to gather information about the transition process and will endeavor to share any updates as they become available. What remains unchanged is ACFA’s commitment to its borrowers during the transition. The loan issuance process will continue as usual during the transition and ACFA will continue to provide the level of service delivery our borrowers expect.
Further questions or comments can be directed to either the Alberta Capital Finance Authority or to Treasury Board and Finance, Government of Alberta.
