TORONTO CITY COUNCIL BUDGET DEPUTATIONS - PREPARATION MONDAY FEB 4 - 6:30 - 8 PM, 60 Lowther Ave. RSVP - lyn@climatefast.ca

Would you like to let councilors know you are concerned about climate action and support funding for the City’s climate action plan, TransformTO? Come out for a preparation session for budget deputations. A deputation just means speaking at a committee meeting, or submitting your comments in writing. Every voice counts!

Budget committee hearings are below. Choose one time. Recommended to go to Scarborough, North York or Etobicoke locations if you can, as there’s a long list to speak at City Hall.

Thursday, February 7

  • City Hall – 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and 6:00 p.m. onwards
