Toronto and FCM Prepare to Welcome Canada's Municipal Leaders
  
OTTAWA, May 12, 2010 - Toronto Deputy Mayor Joe Pantalone and Vice-Presidents Berry Vrbanovic and Claude Dauphin from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) will be at Toronto City Hall on Friday morning to look ahead to the upcoming FCM conference.

The conference is the largest annual gathering of elected officials in Canada as more than 1,500 municipal leaders from across Canada will gather in Toronto from May 28-31 for the FCM’s 73rd Annual Conference. This is an opportunity for Federal leaders to outline their visions for the future of Canada’s cities and communities, and seminars and panel discussions will be held on local and national issues. This is the first year the conference has been held in the GTA since 1995.

The City of Toronto is a long-standing member of FCM and over the years has benefited financially from FCM’s outreach and programs, with more than $407 million in the last five years in Federal Gas Tax Transfers alone.

Date: Friday, May 14

Time: 10:30 a.m.

Location: Toronto City Hall
100 Queen St. W. (Council Chamber Members Lounge)


The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) has been the national voice of municipal government since 1901. With more than 1,775 members, FCM represents the interests of municipalities on policy and program matters that fall within federal jurisdiction. Members include Canada's largest cities, small urban and rural communities, and 18 provincial and territorial municipal associations.
