The Strategy is accompanied by the 2019 Financial Condition Scorecard

Brampton, ON. (April 25, 2019) – Region of Peel Council has endorsed the 2019 Long Term Financial Planning Strategy (the “Strategy”). The Strategy is used to identify and manage risks to long-term financial sustainability and inform decision-making about how tax dollars are spent. A Financial Condition scorecard is updated annually and its findings confirm that the Region is financially healthy.

“To withstand the increased financial pressure on services and programs, we have refreshed our Long Term Financial Planning Strategy to ensure the Region remains financially sustainable and is able to manage and mitigate risks impacting our fiscal health,” said Stephen VanOfwegen, Commissioner of Finance and Chief Financial Officer. “The updated strategy will continue guiding our decision making and further strengthen our ability to deliver value to the taxpayers of Peel today and into the future.”
