Contingency Service Delivery Plans as of 12:01 a.m.

Dear friends,

As you all know, the City's inside and outside workers have gone on strike as of Monday morning.

I know that many residents and businesses will be inconvenienced during this difficult period and your cooperation and patience will be necessary as we pursue a resolution to the labour disruption.


The City will continue to deliver those services that ensure the health and safety of Torontonians and protect our most vulnerable, including police, fire, ambulance, Homes for the Aged, and Ontario Works. Other regular services will be either reduced or cancelled during this time. I regret the hardship this will place on our residents.

 For a complete list of services affected, please visit the City's labour disruption web page

 Of particular interest will be garbage. This link follows to Transfer station locations and disposal requirements  

 Children’s camps have been hit by the strike and with the summer coming this is a real difficulty. Here is a list of local community centres, arenas and childcare centres not affected by the strike that may have spaces.

I have been assured that the bargaining teams are working around the clock hard to reach an agreement that is affordable for the City and fair to the City employees.

If you are looking for specific information about a City Service during the labour disruption, you can also contact Access Toronto, which will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at 416.338.0338/TTY 416-338-0889.

Again, I thank you for your patience as we work to reach as settlement and restore services. 

Councillor Paula Fletcher
