Every year, the Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services holds a public consultation on the next provincial budget. British Columbians can share their thoughts, ideas, and priorities through a variety of participation options. This year, the consultation will take place in late May and June. British Columbians will be invited to share their thoughts, ideas, and priorities. The Committee will review all input received and make recommendations to the Legislative Assembly for the next provincial budget.
Why does the Committee consult on the provincial budget?
The Budget Transparency and Accountability Act SBC 2000, c.23 requires a select standing committee of the Legislative Assembly to hold a budget consultation and report on the results by November 15 each year. The Legislative Assembly has assigned this task to the Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services.
The Act also requires the Minister of Finance to release a budget consultation paper which is referred to the Committee and outlines the province's fiscal forecast, key budget issues and how British Columbians can share their views.
