2023-2027 Financial Plan
The 2023-2027 Draft Financial Plan (budget) will be presented to Council on February 13, 2023.
The draft plan contains our proposed operating and capital budget, highlights of our work program, and the proposed tax increase for 2023.
Core services, such as public safety, transportation, parks and recreation, and infrastructure investments are primarily funded by your tax dollars.
The draft budget represents a flexible plan that can be adapted as work progresses, financial information available to us changes and Council priorities are confirmed. We allocate funds to the highest service and infrastructure priorities, and your feedback plays a critical role.

Financial planning and municipal government
All municipalities in BC must have a financial plan (or budget) that is adopted annually, by bylaw, before the annual property tax bylaw is adopted. The financial plan may be amended by bylaw at any time.
The planning period for a financial plan is five (5) years, that period being the year in which the plan is specified to come into force and the following four (4) years.
The financial plan must set out the following for each year of the planning period:
- proposed expenditures by the municipality
- proposed funding sources
- proposed transfers to or between funds
A process of public consultation regarding the proposed financial plan must be undertaken before the plan is adopted.
