Vancouver 2023 Budget

Feedback and engagement

Each year we conduct public engagement to get input from residents and businesses to guide the development of the draft annual budget.

Public input on the budget helps inform Council when deliberating the draft budget. This leads to approval of a final budget for the upcoming year.

2023 Civic Service Satisfaction Survey

Opinion research was done by a representative telephone survey with Vancouver residents and businesses. The purpose of the survey is to ask about satisfaction with our services and provide insight into priorities for the future.
