- The 2022 Pre-Budget Public Engagement has now closed. Thank you for your input. Watch for more engagement opportunities when the proposed 2022 Budget becomes available for review and comment in early January. -


As the City prepares for its 2022 budget year ahead, City Council is looking for your input to help inform their decision making.

The Budget is more than dollars and cents. It impacts you through the programs and services you receive. Each time you have your garbage collected, turn on the water, have your road plowed, or use a City park, you are seeing your tax dollars at work. The City's mission is to provide a balance of services that improve our quality of life and supports our economy in a responsible manner.

As we recover from the impacts of COVID-19, and continue forward in this unique unprecedented environment, we want to hear from you, the residents of Thunder Bay. What would you like to see in the budget? What programs and services are important to you?

City Council will receive all citizen feedback in advance of their review of the proposed 2022 budget which is prepared by Administration and presented to City Council. Further input opportunities will be available when the proposed budget is released in early January including opportunities for deputations to City Council.
