In addition to supporting the immediate economic needs of residents and businesses, the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the City’s focus and attention on economic renewal and increasing broad-based economic participation. While economic outcomes are shared with other governments and sectors, the City has put significant attention into programs and advocacy that advance short and long-term objectives and that target the sectors and communities that have been most impacted. Examples of these efforts include:
The Economic and Culture Recovery Advisory Group’s report, Building Back Stronger was adopted by Council in December 2020
Toronto Public Health continues to lead and guide the City’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and provide public health guidance to residents and business and key data and indicators on a regular basis.
