Multi-year budget: 2021 update

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Winnipeg’s multi-year budget provides a plan for the City’s revenue and expenses from 2020-2023. This plan gives the City a blueprint for spending over four years. The multi-year budget process allows for flexibility because each year, the budget has to be approved by City Council.

In 2020, a pandemic created unexpected impacts on the City. City Council will have to make some decisions on how to adjust the budget to accommodate the financial impacts from the pandemic.

In order to assist Council in updating the multi-year budget for 2021, get involved and let us know what you value most and how that may have changed since the COVID-19 pandemic. You can also see how a representative sample of Winnipeggers view City services from the 2020 citizen satisfaction survey.

All of the public's input on the budget helps to inform City Council’s deliberation of the draft budget, leading to the approval of the 2021 update to the multi-year budget.
