Establishment and requirement of the payment of fees for information, services, activities and use of City property.

The Fees By-law is updated annually. Proposed fee changes are presented to City Council as part of the annual budget. The 2024 Fees By-law and schedules are effective May 1, 2024.

For the City's operating budget, money is raised in two streams: tax rate and user rate. The tax rate is funded primarily through property taxes, user fees and reserves. The user rate is funded primarily from reserve funds and user fees which are intended to make the programs and services self-sustaining.
