Results of public consultation on City outcomes, household spending, civic services and value for municipal taxation.
Your City. Your Services.
The City of Edmonton collected input on programs and services that are important for Edmonton and Edmontonians. An online survey conducted by Angus Reid Public Opinion and seven community meetings facilitated by City staff compiled the comments and perspectives from 1,208 participants.
The Public Consultation Report on findings has been provided to City Council. The raw data from the online survey is in the City's Open Data catalogue. Data tables are available in related documents on this page.
Public Consultation – 2012 Budget Process
The City held seven public budget meetings to compile input on City budgets and taxes. At the meetings, City staff presented the 2012 budget process, detailing how your city services are funded and provided and where your municipal, provincial and federal tax dollars go.
In breakout sessions, participants discussed services, cost pressures households face, and explored the City’s 10-year goals as described in The Way Ahead: Strategic Plan 2009-18.

What will the City do with the public input?

- be presented to Council for consideration for their October-December budget deliberations;
- made public online; and
- help set the stage for similar citizen input to the 2013 budget process.
What will the 2012 budget survey and public meetings tell the City of Edmonton?
This public consultation gathered citizens’ feedback on:
- The City services that are most important to Edmontonians;
- The services and how Edmontonians want to experience and benefit from those services over the next 10 years; and
- The fair distribution of Edmontonians’ tax dollars for services provided by the City, the Government of Alberta, and the Government of Canada.
