Welcome to the City of Grande Prairie's 2021 budget engagement!

The City of Grande Prairie is in the beginning stages of drafting the 2021 budget and is seeking public input to inform the proposal being presented to Council in the fall.

With recent global changes, we recognize the need to have a budget process that enables us to respond quickly, develop solutions and provide evidence for our decision makers.

Our engagement focuses on gaining a better understanding of the services we provide that residents value the most.

Since 2019, Council’s budgeting process has focused on balancing fiscal constraint with the need to provide a strong level of service and tying major investments to Council priorities. It has also been an administrative focus to review all City operations to maximize corporate efficiency through the application of LEAN principles and other strategic initiatives. To see an example of this, view the "Eastlink Centre LEAN Update" in the Document Library and stay tuned for more updates on similar initiatives across the organization!

Before jumping into the online engagement, we encourage you to review the following documents in our Document Library to help inform your responses:

  • 2020 Tax Brochure
  • 2020 Capital and Operating Budget
  • 2020 Budget Engagement- What We Heard Report
  • Covid-19 Response Timeline

Results from our Citizen Satisfaction Survey completed from January 13 to January 31 are also being used to inform the budgeting process.


Our online engagement is open from June 25 until July 15. It includes:

  • A survey that takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
  • An idea space to share your answers to brainstorming questions
  • A Q&A space to ask administration questions about the budget and get live responses

In addition, an online budget allocator is available at cityofgrandeprairiebudget2021.budgetallocator.com which allows residents to view how much of the average annual tax bill goes to each City service, and vote on whether they would increase, maintain or decrease funding on each item.


We thank you for your participation and input to the 2021 Budget so we can make budget decisions that get the most value for your tax dollars.

The feedback collected will be reported to City Council prior to Council budget deliberations on November 4, 5 and 6.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.


    Welcome to the Budget 2021 Survey.

    Public participation in this process is a priority for us, as responses help shape the City of Grande Prairie's 2021 Budget and guide immediate and long-term planning.  

    The results from this survey will be submitted to City Council for consideration during budget deliberations. 

    The survey should take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete. It will be open for participation until July 15.

    For those who participated in our engagement last year, you will notice the survey questions are largely similar. We have designed the process this way to help gain an understanding of how public opinion and values are trending over time.

    Results will be included in the 2021 Budget Engagement Report that will encompass feedback from all engagement activities. Participation is voluntary, and you can discontinue your participation at any time by exiting the survey.
