Public Consultations

Each fall, the Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services holds province-wide public consultations on the next provincial budget pursuant to Section 2 of the Budget Transparency and Accountability Act [SBC 2000] Chapter 23. The consultations begin in September with the release of the Budget Consultation Paper by the Minister of Finance.

This year’s consultations will include public hearings in communities throughout the province as well as videoconference and conference call sessions. British Columbians may also make a written, audio or video submission, or complete an online survey.

The Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services is one of nine permanent all-party committees of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia. Further information on the role, functions and work of the Committee, including its Terms of Reference, is available under About the Committee.
