The City of Victoria passed a motion put forward by Councillor Helps this past spring to cap property tax increases at no more than 3.25% per year for the next three years. This means the City of Victoria needs to cut $6 million from its budget over the next three years.



Join Councillor Lisa Helps and your neighbours for a budget workshop where you’ll sit together, in conversation, and hash out ideas that Lisa can take back to the Council table.


What: Public Budget Workshop with Lisa Helps

Where: Fernwood Community Centre, 1240 Gladstone Avenue

When: Thursday, October 4th 7:00-9:00pm


Lisa Helps, City of Victoria Councillor
