Proposed 2017 Budget and Business Plan

Halton Region is committed to being a transparent, accountable and fiscally responsible government. Ensuring value for taxpayers’ dollars is a top priority for Halton Region and this drives the budgeting process.
The proposed 2017 Budget and Business Plan is currently being reviewed by Regional Council. It focuses on maintaining service levels, making strategic investments and maintaining the tax rate increase for Regional services at or below the rate of inflation. The 2017 Budget indicates a projected 1.9 per cent increase on property taxes for Regional services and a 5.1 per cent increase in water and wastewater rates.
