The 2020 Rate Supported Budget launched November 15. Learn how you can get involved in the budget approval process. Your voice matters!


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.
