Budget 2020 Engagement Opportunities

Every year, the City must adopt, by bylaw, a five-year financial plan by May 15th as per the Community Charter. As we move through this process to prepare the financial plan, which includes the capital and operating programs and how they are funded, we have been engaging with the community in a variety of ways. In order to improve on the way we inform and solicit feedback, we have been offering a combination of in-person engagement, including council meetings, open houses, and a workshop, as well as an online survey.

Come to our upcoming financial plan draft presentation and learn about how the City is investing in your community and how our budget process is addressing the climate emergency. 

Important upcoming dates:

Monday, February 24, 2020 at 12:00 pm
