Keep Toronto a Quality City! Depute at City Committees!

The City of Toronto is currently reviewing consultant reports which they have commissioned to find savings in the Toronto City budget. The City is facing a shortfall between $400-$750 million for next years budget.

The consultant reports (compiled by the firm KPMG) have been released throughout this week and last and can be read here:

The FMTA is concerned that some of these cuts will negatively affect tenants. As such we urge our allies, members and friends to ensure that tenant voices are heard at deputations.

Committees will be meeting throughout this week and next to discuss the reports and recommended cuts. If you would like to make a deputation, please contact the FMTA at the phone number or e-mail below.
