Learn about the proposed 2024 Budget

Each year, Mayor and Council, the Municipal Manager, and staff work together to develop an annual budget and a Five-Year Financial Plan. The budget is developed keeping in mind near-term risks while planning for long-term financial resilience and sustainability. It pays for services provided by the District of West Vancouver, including police, fire and rescue, bylaw enforcement, parks, community centres, cultural programs, the library, capital projects, and much more.

For 2024, staff developed three budgets, starting with the Minimum Budget as the base and incrementally layering on service level choices to create the Preferred and Best Practice Budgets. Each successive version of the budget options builds upon the preceding budget.
