Participatory budget

Last updated June 8, 2022

Have an idea for improving the quality of life in the city or your neighbourhood? Thanks to participatory budgets, you can submit project ideas, then vote to make them a reality.

How do participatory budgets work

  1. Residents submit their project ideas.
  2. The city or the borough reviews the ideas received, develops them into achievable projects, or improves them. Then they assess the feasibility of the projects and draw up a final list to submit to a vote.
  3. The projects that receive the most votes are completed, within the allocated budget.
