Toronto’s official newsletter in mailboxes soon
  
The City of Toronto’s official city-wide newsletter, Our Toronto, will be released shortly. The spring issue of Our Toronto features information about City services and programs. This issue also provides a centre- spread streetscape that provides an overview of City services and how they support Torontonians’ quality of life. Residents can expect their copies to begin arriving in their mailbox next week.

There are many other articles in this issue, including information about: the City’s budget; the online expansion of 311 service; the revitalization of social housing; road and water service construction projects; emergency preparedness; recycling matters and an innovative new online tool to help residents recycle properly; the renovation of Toronto’s reference library; Wheel-Trans; information about the City’s new environmental disclosure bylaw; waterfront revitalization; and a two-page spread on how to give your home a green tune-up and receive up to $11,000 in grants and rebates. This issue also includes winning photographs from the Toronto Photo Contest.

The featured cover story is about the upcoming municipal election and how eligible voters can ensure that they are included on the voters’ list.

Our Toronto replaces three former city-wide publications. It is distributed to every household in the city through Canada Post, and will be available on the City’s website (toronto.ca/ourtoronto) and at libraries and major community centres throughout the city. Our Toronto will also be available in HTML, accessible PDF and audio formats. Braille and large print will be available upon request. It will also be available in eleven languages on the City’s website or as a hard copy by request.

Our Toronto is an environmentally-friendly publication. It is printed on 100 per cent recycled paper using vegetable inks, and the printer conforms to the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people.

Toronto has won numerous awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. Toronto's government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
