Announcements and Events

Ottawa – Ottawa residents will have several opportunities in the coming weeks to take part in pre-budget consultations in advance of the City of Ottawa Budget 2016. These opportunities are in addition to Mayor Jim Watson’s telephone town hall held in June and the email address.

Starting with a session on Saturday, September 19, City Councillors will work together in groups, inviting residents from their wards to share budget comments and provide input on priorities and potential savings.

Suggestions and ideas arising from these consultations will be brought forward for consideration before the Mayor and City staff develop the draft budget, which will be tabled later this fall. To assist residents in preparing for these meetings background information and budget resource materials are available at
