Many of the City's programs and services are delivered by staff from the City's divisions, such as Transportation Services, City Planning and Parks, Forestry and Recreation. However, many other important services are administered on behalf of the City and the community through separate City agencies and corporations, and other special purpose bodies, each having its own relationship with City Council. Other services are administered through agencies and corporations in which the City is a partner with the federal and/or provincial governments.
Boards range in size and scope from large corporations with a lot of authority over their own operations, such as Toronto Hydro Corporation, to small community-based boards that rely on community involvement and volunteers to deliver programs, such as Community Centre 55. Learn more.
