The Region of Durham provides a wide range of programs and services to a growing and diverse community of residents and businesses. The Region's business planning and budget process reflects our commitment to provide services within a framework of financial stability and transparency.

As one of the fastest growing municipalities in North America, the annual budget allocates resources to ensure Durham residents and businesses enjoy a high quality of life with quality programs and services that align with the key priorities outlined in the Durham Region Strategic Plan.

As an important step Regional Council has established a property tax levy target not to exceed an overall guideline of 2.0 per cent—an annual increase of $56 for an average residential property owner in Durham Region with a current estimated 2021 current value assessment of $483,100. For more details on the Region’s 2021 Guideline see the Report and Presentation.

For more details about the 2020 Budget please see the 2020 Property Tax Supported Business Plans and Budgets, the 2020 Water and Sewer Business Plans and Budgets and our Summary Pamphlet.
