Budget and Finance

2021 Budget

In order to understand the full impact of the pandemic on the municipal budget, Council will discuss capital projects and hear agency and board budgets in the latter part of 2020, with deliberations taking place in the New Year. See full budget schedule below.

“There are still many unknowns that will affect our finances such as the future curve of the pandemic and funding from other levels of government. We also have to factor in residents’ ability to pay taxes, resume recreational activities and other aspects of the ‘new normal’. We’ll continue to be agile and keep a close eye on all variables.”
Jennifer Stover, Director of Corporate Services
