Media Advisory - Toronto City Council to recognize sponsors of Trees Across Toronto
Mayor David Miller and Councillor Paula Fletcher, Chair of the Parks and Environment Committee (Ward 30 Toronto - Danforth) will host a recognition event at City Council to acknowledge the Urban Forest sponsors of Trees Across Toronto, the City’s program to grow the tree canopy.

Toronto's environmental plan, Change is in the Air, calls for government, residents and businesses to work together to double Toronto’s tree canopy from 17 per cent to 34 per cent by 2050. Sponsors of Trees Across Toronto provide funding and in-kind support alongside City resources to plant trees and shrubs at locations across the city. This year’s sponsors are CFRB Newstalk 1010, Canadian National Exhibition, Enbridge Gas Distribution, HSBC Bank Canada, Lomco, Standard Life, Sunshine Landscape Inc., Toronto Hydro and the Toronto Parking Authority.

Date: Thursday, September 25
Time: 9:30 a.m.
Location: Council Chamber, City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

A new sponsor, Standard Life, will be having their first staff planting event with Trees Across Toronto at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday at the Don Valley Brick Works.
