City of TO Update: Family Day Activities and the 2020 Budget

Dear Scarborough-Guildwood Residents

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Family Day in advance. The City of Toronto invites you and your families to celebrate the day at select City recreation facilities, historic museums, conservatories and the Toronto Zoo.

Nathan Phillips Square is hosting a skating party sponsored by Tim Hortons from 1 to 4pm on Monday February 17th. Outdoor rinks, skating trails and indoor arenas will also be open. Other winter activities like snowboarding, skiing, and tobogganing will also be available, details here.   

The Toronto Zoo will offer daily animal-keeper talks, carnivore feedings and other exhibits over the Family Day long weekend. Additionally, the Terra Lumina night walk is available to book from 6:30pm to 8pm on Family Day.

This week the Executive Committee met to discuss the considerations and recommendations for the 2020 Budget from the Budget Committee. Over the last two months, the Budget Committee has collected comments and feedback from residents across the City through mail, e-mail and public deputations. More details on the February 13th Executive Committee meeting here.

The City’s budget is the financial plan of how much money the municipal government will raise and invest and determine the level or services provided to Toronto residents, businesses and visitors. Over 150 City of Toronto services impact your life each day, this is why the City’s budget is so important.

Final recommendations to the 2020 City of Toronto Budget will brought to the February 19th City Council meeting. More details on this City Council meeting will be posted here.

Again, I would like to wish everyone a happy, fun and safe Family Day!

All my Best, 

Paul W. Ainslie
