Gas Tax Fund Survey: Your Chance to Comment on Renewed Program Design

UBCM is preparing for discussions with the federal and provincial governments about a 10-year renewed Gas Tax Agreement in BC.  As part of our consultation leading to those discussions, UBCM is inviting all members to contribute to an online survey that is now online.  The deadline for responses is August 31, 2013.

The survey builds on policy direction provided by UBCM's membership through resolutions endorsed at our Annual Convention and a September 2012 survey on the Long-Term Infrastructure Plan (LTIP).

LTIP was a federally led engagement process meant to inform infrastructure programming beyond the 2014 expiry of the Building Canada Plan (which includes the Building Canada Fund and the Gas Tax Fund).  UBCM provided a submission to the federal government during the LTIP engagement process providing high-level recommendations in relation to both programs.

The survey released today is intended to bring those recommendations into sharper focus regarding the design of the renewed Gas Tax Agreement.  Individual members of Councils and Boards, as well as senior local government staff, are invited to complete the survey.
