Annual Budget

Pre-Budget Consultation 2021-22

The City of Charlottetown invites the public to share ideas and suggestions for the municipality’s Capital and Operational budgets for the upcoming 2021-22 fiscal period.

The City’s Finance, Audit and Tendering committee has begun preparations for the budget process and, along with members of Council, is seeking input from citizens on how they would like to see money allocated on services and programs in the Capital City.

This year, all pre-budget consultation will take place online in an effort to support the Chief Public Health Office’s efforts in limiting public gatherings and contacts in order to reduce the potential for spread of COVID -19. 

Submissions can be made via the form below. For those who do not wish to submit using the online form, written submissions are also being accepted to the attention of:

Finance Manager - City of Charlottetown
P.O. Box 98, 199 Queen Street,
Charlottetown, PE C1A 7K2

Written ideas and suggestions can also be dropped off at City Hall, 199 Queen Street, with the envelope clearly marked to the attention of the Finance Manager.

All comments must be submitted by 12 p.m. (noon) on Friday, February 5. 

Personal information on the form below is collected under section 31(c) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act R.S.P.E.I. 1988, c.F-15-01 as it relates to pre-budget consultation. If you have any questions about how your personal information will be used for the consultation process, please contact the City's Executive Resource and Privacy Coordinator Chantal Matheson.
