Shaping Saskatoon's Financial Future
***The public participation results and comments gathered through the 2017 Online Citizen Budget, along with the results of the 2016 Civic Services Survey can be found below under July 2016***
The 2017 Online Citizen Budget is closed. Thank you to everyone who participated in 2016 and had their say.
Watch for the launch of the 2018 Online Citizen Budget, and for new opportunities throughout the year to have your say!
Budget Video Details:
1) How the City of Saskatoon collects money from five revenue sources, and how that money is distributed to pay for services;
2) The City of Saskatoon provides over 70 services that residents rely on every day;
3) The differences between the two main building blocks of the City's annual budget, the Operating Budget and the Capital Budget; and
4) City Council and Administration, guided by Provincial Legislation, and with input from the public, decide how best to balance the City budget.
This year our approach to planning the 2017 Business Plan and Budget continued to be balanced and accountable.
We’ve continued to make strides toward measuring our successes, and by encouraging residents to be part of our annual budget planning process. Inviting citizens to have their say about spending priorities and the City’s future investment plans demonstrates our ongoing commitment to community engagement.
Citizen Budget - Taking it On The Road!

Archives: 2016 Business Plan and Budget: Balanced & Accountable
This past summer we opened the doors of City Hall and asked you for your views on City projects and spending plans. City Council and Administration will then consider the priorities and preferences, and what matters most to residents. To do this, we are taking a five-phase approach from March until December. We will include new elements such as Performance Measures and we'll create new public engagement opportunities – so you can get involved.
City Council and Administration consider several factors when building the City’s annual budget including our growing population, inflation, capital investments, Council four-priorities and ten-year priorities, performance measures, and public input.
One method used to gather public input is the City of Saskatoon’s Annual Civic Services Survey. View the latest copy of the 2015 Annual Civic Services Survey.
In June, the City offered a number of opportunities to encourage citizens to provide input on the 2016 Budget through interactive displays at the City Hall Open House, Farmer’s Market, Frances Morrison Library, and Saskatoon Field House. The June Public Engagement Results are now available.
There are a number of Administrative Reports that will be presented to Executive Committee related to the 2016 Business Plan & Budget Process. There are also additional documents related to the 2016 Budget Planning Process found below:
