Budget 2023

At the December 20, 2022 Regular Business Meeting, District of Squamish Council adopted the 2023-2027 Five Year Financial Plan.

The Financial Plan reflects a net 5.9% increase in the property tax revenue required to fund the 2023 budget, which reflects reductions from an estimated 3% of non-market growth and 1.5% from prior year tax savings.

Tax rates will be set in April following the release of the BC Assessment revised roll. Impacts on particular classes will be influenced by policy and legal caps as well as market influences between neighbourhoods.

Budget 2023 Engagement

The District invited community feedback on the proposed 2023-27 Financial Plan from June 2022 to December 2022.  

Various forms of public feedback were sought throughout the process. An in-person town hall meeting was held November 29, 2022 to provide a budget overview and an opportunity for community members to speak to staff and Council about the budget.
