Halton’s annual Budget and Business Plan outlines upcoming strategic investments in Regional programs, services and infrastructure.

Proposed 2024 Budget and Business Plan

The proposed 2024 Budget and Business Plan will be reviewed by Regional Council on December 6 and 13. It describes how we will fund and deliver essential services in 2024 while preserving our strong long-term financial position.

The proposed 2024 Budget:

  • maintains service levels for Regional programs and invests in critical program enhancements and essential services to support the community;
  • is based on prudent, forward-looking financial planning principles that have earned Halton a AAA/Aaa Credit Rating for more than 30 years; and
  • keeps the tax rate increases for Regional services at or below the rate of inflation.

It includes a 3.4 per cent property tax increase for Regional programs and services (excluding Halton Regional Police Services) and a 4.3 per cent rate increase for water and wastewater services.
