Previous years' reports are linked below.

The services provided by the District touch virtually every aspect of everyday life in Squamish: clean water, wastewater and solid waste services protect our health and environment, roads and transit keep people moving, protective services keep us safe, economic and development services allow our community to thrive and grow and much more.

During the budget planning process, staff and Council strive to balance the true cost of the services we deliver and the tax burden on property owners to fund these services. Property taxation funds 47% of these services, with borrowing, reserves, utility fees and other revenue sources making up the rest.

Financial Plans

Section 165 of the Community Charter requires a five year financial plan to be adopted annually. The five year plan sets out objectives and policies of the District and includes funding sources, distribution of tax burden, use of permissive tax exemptions, proposed expenditures and proposed transfers between funds.
