Below you will also find the detailed approved Annual Budget Update documents for the property tax, water rate, and wastewater rate supported budgets.
An important element of the Multi-Year Budget is the annual budget update process. It is required under the Municipal Act, 2001.
Annual budget updates provide Council the opportunity to change the budget for special circumstances that require funding and resource adjustments. This can be done by one of three types of budget amendments:
New or Changed Regulation - A new or changed legislation or regulation with a financial impact to the municipality
New Council Direction - A new Council direction that has transpired after the approval of the multi-year budget
Cost or Revenue Driver - A corporate or service area budget shortfall as a result of changes in economic conditions
The annual update process starts in fall with the aim of being completed prior to the start of the upcoming year. For example, the annual update process that starts in 2021 is the 2022 Annual Budget Update and covers the 2022 and 2023 years remaining in the current Multi-Year Budget period.
