Since the pandemic began in mid-March, the City of Toronto has experienced significant financial impacts in the form of both added costs and revenue losses as a direct result of COVID-19. This pandemic has exposed and brought attention to a number of gaps in the system, and has applied significant strain on our social programs and community supports. We cannot look to recreate the same systems that failed us before the pandemic. We must emerge and create a new path forward, with an economic and social recovery that leaves no one behind.
In the fall, Toronto begins its budget planning process for 2021. We know that the City of Toronto is under immense financial pressure because of COVID-19. Join us on Monday, November 23rd from 3:00pm- 4:00pm EST for our final panel as we look to the future and discuss a vision for our city that works for everyone. Building on each previous panel, we can take what we’ve learned and consider what recovery looks like for the City of Toronto. What have we learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, and how can we move forward creating a City that works for everyone? How can our municipal budget evolve to support the creation of this new vision for our City? This panel will explore these questions and more, as we look towards a recovery for all.
Speakers to be announced shortly. Please RSVP and you will receive a link to join prior to the event.
