City services impact your life every day. Each time you visit a recreation centre, borrow a book from the library, have your garbage or recycling picked up, drink clean water from the tap, ride the TTC or have emergency services rush to your aid – you are using a City of Toronto service.

That’s why the City’s budget is so important – it’s about setting our collective goals and building a great city. It determines the level of service provided to Toronto residents and guides decisions on what City infrastructure will be purchased, built and repaired.

The 2021 rate-supported operating and capital budgets were approved by City Council on December 16, 2020. The tax-supported budgets were approved on February 18, 2021.
