Save the Date and Register: Ward 13 Budget Town Hall February 9th, 2021, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. EST
Every year, the City of Toronto embarks on a lengthy consultation process to review our budget. This is where we decide which programs to fund, including the Toronto Police Services; the TTC; Housing and shelters, and youth and recreation programming, and how we intend to pay for them. A budget expresses our values. It should reflect a commitment to real community safety.
While Toronto looks to rebuild and recover, these conversations are critical in ensuring that no one is left behind. Now, more than ever, we have to be specific about how we direct our finances. How do we determine the health of our communities? How can we make sustainable investments for our future? How can we help take care of ourselves and each other? Community revitalization is not just about bricks and mortar. Successful community revitalization is one where both the physical infrastructure and social development receive equal commitment and focus. Looking towards the future, this is how we can make our priorities known.
On February 9, 2021, join Councillor Wong-Tam and guest speaker, Anthony Ng, as they present the upcoming 2021 City of Toronto Budget. They will discuss key learnings from our Making Cents speaker series, as well as explore how you would spend your tax dollars with a new tool called Citizen Budget. There will also be an opportunity for you to ask any questions.
