Budget planning at the University of Victoria
This website has been created to share information and key budget planning documents that are shaping the evolving budget context at UVic.
December update on 2014-15 UVic budget and planning process
The university budget update presentation on Dec. 12, 2013, was held to share information on the 2014-15 budget approach and an enhanced planning process. As outlined in the Nov. 29, 2013, letter from President Cassels, even though there is still uncertainty with respect to budget variables that affect the financial position of the university, departments will not be asked to make reductions in 2014-15. This approach will provide a period of budget stability for faculties and departments while we undertake an enhanced planning process that will be evidence based, transparent and centered on existing processes.

2014-15 UVic budget update - Nov. 29, 2013: Message from President Jamie Cassels
Throughout the fall, I've been engaged in a series of Campus Conversations with you and out in the community. My thanks to those of you who have taken the time to discuss the future of our university in such thoughtful and enthusiastic ways in the 45 meetings held thus far. I plan to report back soon on what I've heard and learned.
One issue raised at virtually every meeting was concern about the university budget and a desire for a more transparent, data-driven process to provide academic and service areas with the tools to facilitate planning and better align resources with university priorities.
To further this goal, I am providing an update on 2014-15 budget planning, including a tentative budget forecast, and on anticipated planning processes.
