The province brought in more than $45 billion in revenue.
That's 17 per cent more than expected, credited mainly to higher than forecast energy and tax revenues.
Total spending was almost $42 billion, and the province now has in $8.7 billion in debt for capital projects.
The rainy day contingency account sits at $4.7 billion, but is forecast to soon increase to $6 billion.
