The UNBSU’s annual budget is just over $1.7 million, and funds everything from our student health & dental insurance to services, events and advocacy initiatives. Our fiscal year runs from May 1st – April 30th, and our annual budget cycle contains three separate stages which are updated and presented to council at three points in the year. Each of these three stages of the budget are presented initially to council for 1st reading, delegated back to finance committee for necessary changes and finally presented and adopted after the 2nd reading at council. The first stage in the budget cycle is the preliminary budget, which is presented to council before March 16th of the previous fiscal year. The second stage in the budget cycle is the revised budget, which is presented to council before September 30th, with the 3rd and final version of the budget presented no later than January 20th.
