The Township of Esquimalt updates its five-year Financial Plan each year, as required by the Community Charter and related bylaws must be adopted by Council prior to May 15 each year. The purpose of the Financial Plan is to provide a budgetary framework for the Township to manage its resources, revenues and expenditures to ensure accountability and best serve the community.

Each year, the Township develops a balanced budget that governs how much it needs to spend to provide services for that year and how much revenue it will require to fund those services. The Financial Plan aligns with Council's Priorities Plan and considers external economic opportunities and pressures, balanced with the need to provide the essential services that residents rely on every day.
