In the City of Toronto, the 2017 Budget is leaving women, girls and families behind. You can help create a more equitable Toronto. On July 12, 2016, Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam successfully moved a Gender Equity Motion that calls on the City of Toronto to incorporate a gender equity perspective when planning and allocating costs to city services — improving the living conditions of women in city. However, the launch of the 2017 budget failed to make significant investment in key strategic priorities of the City, which include: transit and transportation, public safety, and poverty reduction.  The City of Toronto has made commitments to improving gender equity and equality and these priorities need to be reflected in the development of the City’s budget.
