Help shape your budget Halifax

It's easy to tell us what you think.

Share your budget in 3 Steps

  • Step 1

    Get informed! Watch the above video and the Municipal Budget 101 video and you can also review the budget  Frequently Asked Questions  to help you make your decisions.

  • Step 2

    Use the Budget Allocator to select your preferred budget and service delivery levels from each of the key Council budget areas listed. The potential implications of your budget selection are explained below the allocator. (Please note that the 5% and 10% are not exact amounts, but just indicators of your preference for a small or larger increase or decrease in budgets.)

  • Step 3

    You can leave comments about why you selected a particular budget level or item by clicking on the grey comment icon     at the right of your selected budget level.

Please also note that as we develop the 2015-16 Proposed Budget, many new factors (such as inflation) will come into play and will also place demands upon the budget.

The comments you provide here, as well as your feedback via the Shape Your Budget page, will be included in a staff report to Council prior to final budget deliberations.
