It’s your city and your budget, so we want to hear from you! The City of Ottawa engages with residents to gather ideas and feedback as it drafts the budget each year for City Council’s consideration. Residents have many opportunities to consult on the budget year-round through our office, committee meetings, social media, contacting 3-1-1 and scheduled engagement opportunities during the budget process.
Your feedback helps inform the City’s budget priorities and contributes to decisions about investments in services that you want and need.
Submit your ideas to our office at Clarke.Kelly@Ottawa.ca
Call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401). Call our office at 613-580-2475.
