About the event
It’s your city and your budget, so we want to hear from you! Your feedback helps inform the City’s budget priorities and contributes to decisions about investments in services that you want and need.
Join Councillor David Hill (Ward 3 - Barrhaven West) and Councillor Wilson Lo (Ward 24 - Barrhaven East) as they go over the details of the draft budget.
Please note, the presentation will take place in English only, though bilingual staff will be on hand to provide assistance where possible. Following the presentations, residents will have a chance to participate in a Q&A with both Councillors.
Registration is not required. Unable to make it? You can still have your say online.About the budget process
Every year, the City of Ottawa produces a municipal budget. One of the City’s most important documents, the budget is the blueprint that defines how resources are collected and allocated. The overall budget comprises two main components – the Operating Budget and the Capital Budget.
During development of the operating and capital budgets, Council has some flexibility for reallocating or reprioritizing funds between programs and services to address emerging issues. Given these limits on discretion and the financial realities of limiting tax increases to residents, it is difficult to address all these issues or to implement significant changes from year to year.
