A short film will also be screened describing the various relief projects that are part of FCM’s post-tsunami reconstruction programs.

The Indian Ocean tsunami of December 26, 2004 caused massive devastation and destroyed or disrupted the ability of local governments to deliver basic services to their residents. As a result, staff from the City of Toronto participated in FCM’s assistance missions to rebuild and rehabilitate communities in Batticaloa, Sri Lanka and Banda Aceh, Indonesia.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years, Toronto has won more than 70 awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
