Halton’s annual Budget and Business Plan provides details supporting the Regional portion of the property tax levy, as well as the water and wastewater rate-supported budget.

Proposed 2020 Budget and Business Plan

The proposed 2020 Budget and Business Plan is currently under review by Regional Council. It describes how we will fund and deliver essential services next year while preserving our strong long-term financial position.

The proposed 2020 Budget:

  • maintains service levels for Regional programs and makes strategic investments in the community;
  • aligns with the themes, objectives and outcomes outlined in the 2019–2022 Strategic Business Plan;
  • is based on prudent, forward-looking financial planning principles that have earned Halton a top 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 1.7 per cent property tax increase for Regional programs and services (excluding Halton Regional Police Services) and a 3.3 per cent rate increase for water and wastewater services.
