2018 Budget

The 2018 Annual Budget was prepared by Regional District staff based on direction received by the Regional Board.  Between October 2017 and January 2018 meetings took place where the budgets were debated and elected officials made various changes to the draft budget.  All changes made at these meetings have been incorporated into the schedules below and a list of the changes is available here.  The 2018 Five Year Financial Plan Bylaw was adopted on January 10, 2018.

The Regional District Budget is comprised of 176 separate services (137  General and 39 Water & Sewer). The Local Government Act requires Regional Districts to keep separate records for each service, and each service must balance.
