The City of Victoria invites you to use the budget simulator below to help you understand the budget process. This educational exercise allows you to experience the types of decisions City Council and staff face when developing and approving the budget each year.
Like any business or household, the needs and wants within a municipality are often greater than what the municipality and community can afford at one time. Each year as part of the budget process, choices must be made. The City’s budget looks to adapt to change and balance competing priorities while continuing to provide the high-quality services our citizens have come to expect.
This budget simulator is for educational purposes. Feel free to explore as many scenarios as you like before submitting your choices.
