How your City Budget Works

As we prepare for the nation’s excitement and attention to fall upon Ottawa as the centre of celebrations for Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, it is easy to forget the complexities and fiscal discipline required to build an affordable, caring, sustainable, and prosperous city.

One of our guiding principles as a Council this past year is to find the balance between being prudent and transparent with taxpayer dollars in the present while making the necessary investments to ensure our city’s enduring prosperity.

In order to shed light on the budget process and how these decisions impact your individual property taxes, the City of Ottawa has developed new and innovative tools available in the Understanding Your City Budget section of Ottawa.ca and includes:

How your City Budget Works: A four-minute video that uses plain language and easy-to- understand graphics that describe the development of the City budget.

Get Involved in the Budget Process - The City of Ottawa’s Budget Process Made Simple: A printable info-graphic that describes the budget and consultation process and highlights when and how residents can have their say.

Budget Planning Tool - Citizen Budget Consultation: This online tool provides you with the opportunity to play the role of politician or administrator and determine what areas of City services and programs require increases, decreases or status quo funding, and gives you the opportunity to provide comments. To show the impact of your decisions, the tool will also show how your changes will affect the budget rate and your individual property taxes.

These budget tools will help you better understand how your tax dollars are spent. It’s also an opportunity to express your views on how property tax dollars will be used and to take part in the decisions City staff and Council are faced with when developing and approving the annual budget.

The 2017 simulated budget exercise is a pilot project. Although the feedback received will not directly inform the creation of the proposed budget, your feedback will be consolidated in a report and provided to Council during the budget process. The tool will remain live until the budget is tabled on November 9th, 2016.

To ensure your opinions are heard, I encourage you to attend a public consultation that will be take place from mid-September to mid-October. For a schedule of public consultations or online consultation tools, visit Ottawa.ca to have your say in Budget 2017.
