The City would like to consult and engage with residents about the 2021 budget, as we plan for the next five-year budget cycle, from 2021 to 2025. There are many factors that affect the City's operating budget, which is tied to priorities set out by Council in the Council Strategic Plan.

the financial sustainability of municipal services has been strained in 2020 as we have all undergone extraordinary challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, we are making appropriate adjustments to our 2021 budgets and plans and will adapt this year's financial planning process in light of projected revenue shortfalls and increased operating costs related to the pandemic.

On August 25, 2020, Council directed Administration to prepare the 2021 Budget with reduced services across the organization to bring the tax rate to a reduced level for the next several years (specifically 2021). View the Report to Council here.
