Fiscal Transparency 

man analyzing financial information

How we ensure fiscal transparency and accountability:

  • Conducting in-depth reviews of both our current and capital budgets to ensure cost effectiveness and sustainability.
  • Identifying grant funding opportunities wherever possible.
  • Reviewing service fees to ensure cost recovery.
  • Working with partners to share services wherever possible to reduce costs.
  • Continuously looking for ways to efficiently and effectively improve business practises.

Budgets

We ensure our budgeting process is in compliance with the Ontario Policing Standards and other applicable legislation.

The budget is developed to support our Strategic Plan and to meet changing needs in our community. The budget highlights provides quick facts on our budget and staffing.
