Town of View Royal Receives Distinguished Budget Presentation Award

For the fourth consecutive year, the Town of View Royal has received the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) Distinguished Budget Presentation Award. This year's award is presented to the Finance Department for the 2021-2025 Financial Plan.

The award represents a significant achievement and reflects the commitment of the Town and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. In order to receive the award, the Town had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. The Town's budget documents had to be rated "proficient" in four categories (each including 14 criteria) designed to assess how well the budget documents serve as:

  • a policy document;
  • a financial plan;
  • an operations guide; and
  • a communications device.

There are over 1,700 participants in the GFOA Budget Awards Program. The most recent budget award recipients, along with their corresponding budget documents, are posted quarterly on GFOA's website. Award recipients have pioneered efforts to improve the quality of budgeting and provide an excellent example for other governments throughout North America.
