NEXT SIMCOE CHAPTER DINNER MEETING
"YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR: IS IT TIME TO DIVERSIFY FUNDING SOURCES FOR CANADIAN CITIES?"
DATE: Tuesday, February 21, 2017
SPEAKER: Dr. Enid Slack, Director, Institute on Municipal Finance & Governance, Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto
cities face many challenges – changing demographics, increased
income inequality, increasingly complex expenditure demands,
deteriorating infrastructure, and more. These challenges have
been increasing but the revenues available to cities to respond
to them have remained roughly the same – property taxes, user
fees, and transfers from federal and provincial governments.
