Help Renew Our City’s Long-Term Financial Plan

We need to ask ourselves what kind of city we want and we need a plan to fund that long-term vision.

The City of Toronto is renewing its Long-Term Financial Plan – a roadmap for how the City will make investments in the future. We want the public's input on this important issue so we can build the city we all want.

City Council has adopted economic, social, and environmental strategies that can lead Toronto forward. A Long-Term Financial Plan with well-articulated aspirations, clear priorities, multi-year spending and revenue targets, and effective planning processes can help Council realize that vision.

We want your input on some challenging questions about how the City can manage expenses, raise revenue, make the most of our assets, and manage our finances in order to build the city we want and maintain Toronto's strength.

This website features information on the City of Toronto’s financial challenges and the options we are considering to help us achieve long-term financial sustainability.

The findings from the public consultation process will provide input and advice for Council and the City Manager as we develop the City's Long-Term Financial Plan and help give Toronto the roadmap it needs to achieve our aspirations and goals.
