OTTAWA Dec 2 (Reuters) - The Canadian province of Quebec on Tuesday reaffirmed its plan to return to a balanced budget in 2015-16, as had been forecast in its budget earlier in the year.

In its update on the province's economic and financial situation, Quebec Minister of Finance Carlos Leitao also forecast a deficit of C$2.35 billion ($2.06 billion) for 2014-15, unchanged from June's budget.
