2023 budget

Strathcona County is committed to ensuring it provides services in an effective, efficient and financially sustainable way.  

Council and community priorities, programs and services, infrastructure and assets are all considered in budgeting.  

Annually the County approves a multi-year budget detailing how dollars are to be spent to maintain and improve municipal programs and services for the community. It’s a balance between setting a reasonable tax rate and delivering services expected by residents and businesses.
