Budgets and finances

Among the world’s most livable cities, Vancouver is growing rapidly as a vibrant city with a strong economy that attracts global attention.

Our greatest challenge in planning and budgeting for the future is to make the best use of our resources to maintain basic services while responding to the expanding needs of our growing population.

The City must continually balance the need to provide services, facilities, and infrastructure with the need to keep property tax and utility rate increases at a manageable level for businesses and residents.

2018 Budget

In the 2018 Budget, we include a five-year balanced financial plan to guide our strategic investments and business transformation opportunities while keeping property tax, utility fees, and user fees affordable over the long term.
