A List Of Montreal's 19 Boroughs And The All-New Allocated Budget For Each One

Montreal's mayor Denis Coderre has made certain boroughs jump with glee, and others boil over with anger, with his administration's new budget by borough. Announced yesterday, the budget will go into effect starting 2015, with certain areas justifiably pissed off.

The new budget includes funding for 12 services (snow removal, libraries, parks, etc.) with changes made in light of longstanding financial disparities between boroughs, as revealed in a finance study taken in 2012 and 2013, according to Coderre.

No amount of justification has placated certain borough leaders, who are in an uproar from the cuts in funding, particularly Plateau Mont-Royal. Coderre has even been accused of giving more money to boroughs where his "friends" live.

Whatever the case and reasoning, here are the new budgets of every borough in Montreal:

  • Ahunistic-Cartieriville: $66, 775.9 (+3.7%)
  • Anjou: $30, 577.7 (+3.1%)
  • CDN-NDG: $74, 607.8 (+2%)
  • Lachine: $37, 041.7 (+2.7%)
  • LaSalle: $53, 264.4 (+21.7%)
  • L'Île-Bizard–Sainte-Geneviève: $11, 877.5 (-3.7%)
  • Mercier-Hochelaga-Maissoneuve: $75, 825.6 (+8.2%)
  • Montreal-Nord: $48, 501.5 (+6.9%)
  • Outremont: $16, 372.2 (-19.3)
  • Pierrefonds-Roxboro: $38, 381.9 (+11.1%)
  • Plateau Mont-Royal: $54, 249.5 (-12.7%)
  • Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles: $70, 215.5 (+10.2%)
  • Rosemont: $66, 944.5 (+3.8%)
  • Saint-Laurent: $76, 848.6 (+1.4%)
  • Saint-Leonard: $39, 170.5 (+7.7%)
  • Sud-Ouest: $48, 394.3 (-10.8%)
  • Verdun: $39, 936.7 (-2.3%)
  • Ville-Marie: $75, 009 (-13.7%)
  • Villeray-St.Michel-Parc Extension: $65, 573.6 (-2.3%)

Positive changes to the budget will be introduced over 5 years, while decreases will take 10 years, to ease the borough into the monetary change. Hopefully by then the new budgets will have proven to work.
