$611 billion



"According to Professor Robert Mansell, Albertans have given Canada $611 billion more in federal taxes than we have received back in transfers and services since 1961. Albertans have made a net contribution of $200 billion in the last decade alone. That means an Alberta family of four has contributed an average of $14,700 per year to the rest of the country over the past six decades."  (Page 101 - UCP platform 2019)  CLICK HERE for our information source
