Finance & Administrative Services

City Funding Support

A number of city services are provided through agencies, boards and commissions, or ABCs.  These ABCs are funded (in full or part) by the City of Saint John and report directly to Common Council.  This would include the Saint John Board of Police Commissioners, Saint John Transit, and the Saint John Parking Commission, among others. Complete list of ABCs.

In addition to funding ABCs, the City of Saint John also holds service agreements for the provision of service by special purpose bodies.  This would include organizations such as the SPCA, who provide animal control, or the YMCA, who provide recreational programming in local community centres.  These service agreements outline the City’s specific service objectives and requirements to be carried out by an organization.

Finally, the City of Saint John administers several grant programs that enhance the quality of life of our citizens.  This would include heritage, community development, arts and culture, sports and recreation, and special interest groups who provide services and resources for seniors, teens, minority groups, and persons with disabilities.  Sponsorship requests for city events are also considered on a case by case basis.

The City's Funding Support initiatives, in their various forms, will be under review throughout 2014.
