The Saskatchewan NDP is campaigning on a promise not to make cuts and increase spending in health care, education and job creation.
The party said it would spend $2.1 billion over the next five years to implement its platform, while not saying when it would balance the budget.
The Saskatchewan Party said the main ballot question is which party is best able to lead the province’s economic recovery.
It is promising $851 million in new spending and said it plans to balance the budget in 2024.
Both parties have made promises each says will help the economy recover.
The NDP says it will invest tens of millions more dollars into health care. The Saskatchewan Party — as the government — promised new urgent care centres in Regina and Saskatoon.
Both parties are promising to increase the number of child care spaces in the province, while the NDP said it will invest millions of dollars to reduce class sizes.
The NDP and Saskatchewan have pledged to hire more staff to support seniors and care homes. The Saskatchewan Party is also promising to increase the seniors income plan.
