Each year City staff prepare an annual operating and capital budget and five-year financial plan for City Council’s consideration. Over the summer and into the early fall, we have been engaging with the public in several ways:

  • to get input on priorities for spending and
  • to get your opinions about how the City is managing its finances on your behalf.

In early December, the draft budget for 2021 will be presented to City Council for review and approval.

    ‘Balance the Budget’ with our new online tool

    Show us how you would balance the budget with our new, interactive tool. You can increase or decrease funding for different City service areas as you wish, but you still need to maintain a balanced budget (we are required by law to do so). Staff and Council will consider the public’s input from the tool as Budget 2021 is developed.

    Using the tool, you can:

    1) Change the way money is spent
    The spending section allows you to increase or decrease the amount of money that is spent on certain items.
    2) Change the way money is brought in
    The revenue section allows you to increase or decrease the amount of money coming from different sources.
