All City spending is authorized by a financial plan bylaw, adopted by Council. This is legislated by the Community Charter. The Five-Year Financial Plan (or budget) bylaw provides a budgetary framework and the spending authority for the City to plan and manage its resources, revenues and expenditures in order to best serve the community.
The 2018-2022 Financial Plan was presented at the Special Council meetings held on November 7, 8, and 9 and was adopted by Council on December 18, 2017. These meetings can be viewed through the City’s website.
