What are the City’s Agencies and Corporations?

Many of the City’s programs and services are delivered by staff from the City’s divisions, such as Transportation Services, City Planning, and Parks, Forestry & Recreation. However, many other important services are administered on behalf of the City and the community through separate City agencies and corporations and other special purpose bodies, each having its own relationship with City Council. Other services are administered through corporations that are partnered with the City.

City agencies and corporations range in size and scope from large corporations with a lot of authority over their own operations, such as Toronto Hydro Corporation, to small community-based boards that rely on community involvement and volunteers to deliver programs, such as Community Centre 55.
