Decisions made by the City — more so than those made by the province or the federal government — have the greatest impact on our daily lives: they impact services like public transit, roads and sidewalks, libraries, parks, garbage collection, emergency services, and so much more.

The City also plays an important role in creating the conditions that advance equity and justice and allow everyone to thrive — by, for example, engaging youth, building and maintaining affordable housing, fighting climate change, protecting tenants, encouraging vaccination, and tackling poverty.
