Toronto Public Service Week Kicks Off

Toronto Public Service Weeks Kicks Off


The TTC may have been at a standstill, but that doesn't mean there isn't tons to do discover this week as the City of Toronto celebrates Toronto Public Service Week from May 29 to June 2, 2006. Throughout the week, the City will showcase its services and the role that the Toronto Public Service plays in delivering those services to Toronto residents, businesses and visitors.

The Public Service Week also coincides with Bike Week, and every day will kick off with a Pancake Breakfast that will place an emphasis on encouraging biking throughout Toronto. Other events include cooking demonstrations, youth public speaking workshops, and hands-on fire-fighting activities.

In announcing the launch of the Toronto Public Service Week, Mayor David Miller said, "members of the Toronto Public Service do their part every day by providing vital services to city residents and businesses. Toronto Public Service Week is an opportunity for the city residents to learn more about our professional civil service and the ways the public can also have an important role in building this great city."

The Toronto Public Service has more than 48,000 employees (including yours truly) who work in City divisions, agencies, boards and commissions to deliver services to 2.7 million residents.
