2020 budget


The budget is the City of Kitchener’s annual financial plan, and is the primary basis of financial decision making. The budget process allows council to prioritize the programs and services delivered by the city and sets direction for the work to be completed over the upcoming year as well as future years referenced in the budget forecast.

A high-level overview of the budget can be found through our budget at a glance document:
