Delta Hotel Follow-Up

Last night, City staff, shelter operators and 42 Division came together virtually to address questions and provide further information for residents regarding the Delta Hotel shelter programs. I want to thank residents for sending in their questions and tuning in. My office will be providing follow-up information and contacts for residents in the coming days.

City of Toronto

  • Community Environment Day events begin September 13 and will run on seven weekends until November 1.  This year, Community Environment Days will be set up as drive-thru events at the City’s seven Drop-Off Depots. This is a great opportunity to help reduce the amount of reusable or recyclable waste going to landfill and to safely dispose of household hazardous waste.
  • At the events, residents can drive to different stations to drop off clothing, books and unwanted items for donation and to dispose of batteries, old paint and other household hazardous waste. Free bagged compost will be available (limit of two bags per vehicle while supplies last). Read more…

Government of Canada

  • The Federal Government is providing $2 billion in funding to schools across the country to help with implementing public safety measures.
  • The $2 billion will allow provinces and territories to work with local school boards. This money can be used to change learning spaces, improve air ventilation, increase sanitization and hygiene and buy personal equipment and cleaning supplies.
  • An extra $112 million for First Nations communities was also announced to ensure a safe return to school on reserves.
  • Funding will be provided in two installments, one this fall and the second in early 2021.

  • 活动中,居民可驾车到不同站口,捐赠衣物、书籍和不需要的物品,并处理电池、旧油漆和其他家庭危险废物,还可免费获得袋装堆肥(每辆车限取两袋,先到先得)。更多资讯
