Event Details

Budgets are practical expressions of government priorities, but most of us don’t really know how they are made, or that spending decisions and reporting are part of a year-round cycle. This workshop introduces the budget process, and works through the activities that take place throughout the year from planning to proposing to spending to reporting and evaluating.  We’ll discuss who does what, including the role of Treasury Board and staff in the Treasury Board Secretariat; the Department of Finance; line departments; and Cabinet.  We’ll also address the question of how Manitobans’ concerns get reflected in the budget process, and in the final budget.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Become familiar with the budget process in Manitoba;
  2. Understand who in government does what within the budget process;
  3. Identify where Manitobans’ concerns can be impactful during the budget process.

About the Facilitators

Karine Levasseur, Ph.D

Karine is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Studies at the University of Manitoba. She earned her PhD. in the School of Public Policy and Administration at Carleton University. While Karine has many research interests, she is particularly interested in how governments in Canada relate (or do not relate) to voluntary organizations. Her research explores how voluntary organizations can become more meaningfully involved in public policy development, and not just resigned to implement public policy decisions made without their involvement.

Andrea Rounce, Ph.D 

Andrea is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Studies at the University of Manitoba. She teaches and researches in public administration. A primary focus of Andrea’s research is government's use of public opinion research and consultation; public sector governance; and research methodology. Emphasizing the need to bridge theory and practice, Andrea also works with public sector organizations on policy and governance issues while working collaboratively on community engagement and education projects around elections and voting.
