Participatory Budgeting Proposal Form
Participatory Budgeting is a democratic process in which community members directly decide how to spend part of a public budget. The process was first developed in Brazil in 1989 and is now practiced in over 1,500 cities around the world.

In 2019, the City of Victoria has $50,000 for Participatory Budgeting projects that will be voted upon by the public. These projects may be implemented by the City, a nonprofit organization or citizens of Greater Victoria depending upon the nature of the project. This year projects MUST benefit youth ages 9-24. The three steps are as follows:

1) Members of the public submit the Proposal Form and Budget Form (Budget Form available at
2) Steering Committee and City of Victoria reviews proposals to ensure they meet the criteria outlined on the website
3) Public Voting (more than one project may be chosen for implementation)

While we encourage creativity and innovation and don’t want to put too many limits on your thinking, there are a few criteria every idea must meet:
-- Projects and events must take place within the City of Victoria
-- Projects and events must benefit youth
-- Projects must be submitted by a resident of the Capital Region District (CRD)
-- Projects can be put forward by individuals, groups, or non-profit organizations
-- Private businesses cannot put forward a project, but can sponsor one by providing additional funds
