The City of Toronto’s Special Committee on Governance will hold its second meeting at 9:30 a.m. on April 12, in Committee Room 1 at City Hall. Members of the public are invited to attend.
At this meeting, Professor Gabriel Eidelman, Director of the Urban Policy Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, will present findings from the University of Toronto’s 2017 City Hall Task Force, which made recommendations to improve City Council’s core decision-making processes and procedures.
A staff report will recommend a work plan for the committee and a public engagement strategy for the coming year. The report also includes a summary of the public input the committee received on the City’s governance structure, and preliminary research at its first meeting on February 21.
The Special Committee on Governance was established by City Council with a mandate to consider the impacts on the City’s governance structure and processes arising from the reduced size of Council and to make recommendations to City Council on any further changes to its governance structure.
