Quebec’s 2017-18 budget will be tabled on March 28.

Finance Minister Carlos Leitao made the announcement today and said it will be his third consecutive balanced budget.

Quebec posted a $2.2-billion surplus in 2015-16, while the current fiscal year ends March 31.

The government announced additional funds for education and health last October.

The budget will come down six days after the federal one.
