Each year, the District of Sooke Council must adopt a five year financial plan, with the current year of the plan being the annual budget. The financial plan identifies both operating and capital expenditures balanced against revenues from such sources as:

  • property tax
  • sale of services
  • grants
  • transfers from other governments

The financial plan is developed by Council through their strategic planning process and identifies for staff and the public what types and quality of services are to be provided. A public consultation process is required for the financial plan and the municipality must produce annual audited financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles Public Sector Accounting Board of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants. The audited statements must be included in the Annual Municipal Report.


2019 – 2023 Five Year Financial Plan

Over the next two months, the District of Sooke Council will hear presentations from each department, then review and approve the Financial Plan and Property Tax Rates for 2019. The process involves open dialogue and consultation with the residents of the District of Sooke with opportunities for the public to find out more about the District’s budgeting process. The Five Year Financial Plan and Tax Rate bylaws must be adopted by May 15, 2019.

Information regarding the 2019 budget and the 2019 – 2023 Five Year Financial Plan will be posted here as it becomes available. The details from these meetings will be posted on the Agenda & Minutes page of the District website.
