the Qathet regional district (qRD) administration and operations are governed by the Law on Local Authorities and the Community Charter. Each year, the qRD should go through an annual budgeting process. The annual budgeting process provides a roadmap to the organization and assists in the day-to-day management of qRD. The budgeting process allows the qRD to set its service tax rates for the year, assess debts, capital funding, and all property acquisitions and disposals. Additionally, the annual budgeting process feeds into the five-year financial plan, which outlines five-year capital project planning and asset management for the region as a whole. Where possible, the qRD works in collaboration with key local players, as well as with the provincial and federal governments to obtain grants to help pay for services and projects aimed at reducing the tax burden of our residents. .
