Opportunities for participation in our budget process

The draft budget is developed in the summer and fall. During this time, members of the community can provide input by asking questions, communicating with the Mayor and Council, and completing surveys. There are Councillor led public consultation sessions for you to share your views with Council. Watch for updates to the schedule on this page.

The draft budget presentation and web cast is Wednesday, November 4. If you are interested in the budget of a specific City service, the City Services chart will show you where to look. Draft budget books are published on https://ottawa.ca/en/city-hall/budget.

Each standing committee or board will review the budget of specific service areas that reports to them. These meeting dates are published on this page. At the meetings, there is an opportunity for community delegations to register and make a brief presentation to the Standing Committee.

On Wednesday, December 9 Council will approve the 2021 budget. Once the budget books are updated, they are posted on https://ottawa.ca/en/city-hall/budget.
