City celebrates Toronto Public Service Week - May 29 to June 2
“Serving a great city and its people” is the theme of the first Toronto Public Service Week, which the City of Toronto will host from May 29 to June 2. Throughout the week the City will showcase its services and the role that the Toronto Public Service plays in delivering those services to Toronto residents, businesses and visitors.

During Toronto Public Service Week, the City will stage a series of events, presentations, demonstrations, tours and displays at locations across Toronto. Admission is free at all venues.

“Members of the Toronto Public Service do their part every day by providing vital services to city residents and businesses,” said Mayor David Miller. “Toronto Public Service Week is an opportunity for the city residents to learn more about our professional civil service and the ways the public can also have an important role in building this great city.”

“The Toronto Public Service is constantly striving to improve and enhance service to the public,” said City Manager Shirley Hoy. “The awards and recognition that City programs and staff receive demonstrate the fundamental commitment to excellence that members of the Toronto Public Service bring to their work.”

The Toronto Public Service has more than 48,000 employees who work in City divisions, agencies, boards and commissions to deliver services to 2.7 million residents.
