The Proposed 2020 Budget supports Term of Council priorities, advancing Brampton as a Well-Run City, a Green City, a Healthy and Safe City, a City of Opportunity, and a diverse Mosaic. Budget deliberations will begin at 1 pm on February 18, with final Budget approval set for 7 pm on February 26.

A full list of key dates for Budget Committee meetings, Budget highlights, and the full Budget proposal are available on the City website. The City welcomes public review and feedback on the Proposed 2020 Budget.  

The City’s baseline proposal to the Budget Committee is a 1.2% net budget increase for 2020 compared to 2019. If approved, this would result in a Brampton property tax increase of 0.5%, or an average of $27 per household, to fund the City’s 2020 Budget.

On their property tax bill, taxpayers will see a total tax increase of 1.8%, or an average of $91 per household. This is a combined total, including the City of Brampton’s 0.5%, the Region of Peel and Peel District School Board.

During Budget deliberations, the Committee may review scenarios for additional efficiencies or investments.
