Whose Job Is It To Fix It?
Resources for Tenants
Ward 22 has the highest percentage of tenants in Toronto. Please see the Tenants' Issues page for resources, updates, and upcoming events. I've also compiled a list of Tenants' Frequently Asked Questions that I hope you find helpful.
311 is a simple, three-digit phone number that you can use to get information about City of Toronto services or programs, or to make a request for service. Residents, visitors and businesses no longer have to try to find the right division or individual at the City to get information or help. Callers can get information about everything from Toronto Public Library hours of operation, to reporting a missed garbage pick-up, to finding out where the closest flu clinic is located.
211 is your community connection. It is the number to call for information about human services - health, social and community services. 211 connects you with an information specialist who can provide information and referrals 24 hours a day. For example, you can call 211 if you are a newcomer to Canada and are looking for employment training or you are concerned about a family member with an addiction and need information about available programs. You can call 211 if you've lost your wallet and don't know where to replace your identification or you're looking for marriage counselling or even need to know where the nearest after-hours medical clinic is located. You can also visit the 211 Toronto website.
City Council and Committee Meetings
The Toronto Meeting Management Information System (TMMIS) is your online window into the activities of City Council and its committees. Here, you can get up-to-date information including meeting schedules, agendas, minutes, and reports.
Broken Meter and Pay & Display Parking Ticket Disputes
The City has introduced a new parking ticket dispute process for parking meter and/or pay-and-display machine offences. It's now easier to dispute your parking ticket if you have a valid receipt. Click here for more information.
2012 Property Value Assessment Update
Earlier this fall, all property owners in 2012 should have received a Property Assessment Notice in the mail with the updated assessed value of their property as of January 1, 2012. The value of your assessment affects the amount of property taxes you will pay over the next four years, so it is important that it is accurate. Click here for more information, including how to dispute your assessment if you believe it is incorrect.
The City’s website has a new online search tool – the Waste Wizard – to help you learn what to do with your waste materials. Which bin does it go in? Is it household hazardous waste? What do I do with it if it doesn’t go into the bin? Click here to find out what to do with your waste materials.
Resources for Seniors
SPRINT Senior Care began caring for seniors and enabling seniors to care for themselves in 1983. They continue to do so today as an accredited, not-for-profit community support service agency in Toronto by offering a wide range of practical and low-cost services to seniors and caregivers.
