    Attention, residents of the District of Port Hardy!


    Exciting news awaits as we gear up for the 2024-2028 financial planning year! Your District Council is embarking on its annual Financial Planning process to shape the budget for the next five years. But hold on, because this time, we have a game-changing tool in our arsenal: Citizen Budget eDemocracy!


    What’s all the buzz about, you ask? Well, Citizen Budget is not your ordinary budgeting tool. It’s a cutting-edge platform that puts the power in your hands, allowing you to dive into the nitty-gritty of tax dollar allocation. You can tweak spending levels across various categories and see how your choices affect the tax rates. It’s like having your very own fiscal crystal ball!


    We believe in the strength of our community’s collective voice, so we want YOU to participate in this exhilarating budget development process actively. Your input matters! Share your thoughts, desires, and aspirations on how your hard-earned tax contributions should be put to use. Help us craft a budget that truly reflects the needs and dreams of our vibrant community. You will note that we are asking about four main levels of service, Fire Department, Recreation, Parks and Transportation because they make up a large amount of our budget. We have a comments page for you to leave your thoughts beyond those departments.

    Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to shape the future! Join us on the Citizen Budget platform and let your voice be heard. Let’s create a budget we can all be proud of.


    We can’t wait to see the amazing ideas and insights you bring. Your involvement is invaluable, and we wholeheartedly appreciate your commitment to this vital endeavour.


    Get ready to make a difference!
