VANCOUVER — B.C. unveiled its budget for the upcoming fiscal year Tuesday, which highlighted investments in health-care as the province continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

The finance minister said B.C.’s plan needed to both address the ongoing health crisis and to look ahead.

“Our focus is two-fold,” Selina Robinson said.

“First, to reinforce B.C.’s health-care system, both against the pandemic and to meet the needs of the future. Second, to make real, significant, and continued progress toward the mental health system that British Columbians deserve.”
