So do we.
Toronto uses over 1,000,000,000 litres of water every day.
The city’s tap water is continuously analyzed to ensure it meets three levels of strict standards: from Toronto Public Health, the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada.
Toronto Water’s accredited lab tests drinking water every six hours — that’s over 6,000 times a year.
Toronto’s 11 public beaches are tested for water quality every day from June through August.
We make sure our city’s properties are safe to live and work in.
Our members in Licensing and Standards conduct 200,000 inspections each year for property standards, zoning, noise, waste, buildings, parks and businesses.
Property inspection officers have a 90% response rate to 24-hour emergency inspections.
30% of Torontonians are renters. Toronto’s RentSafeTO program helps ensure they have a clean, safe and secure place to call home.
With thousands of people flocking to live here every year, and new construction projects springing up everywhere we look, Toronto’s growth shows no signs of slowing down. But the services our city provides can barely keep up.
We cannot allow public safety standards to fall behind. This means our city needs more inspectors, testers, and enforcement officers to reduce the burden on current positions and ensure that nothing falls through the cracks.
Toronto deserves better. Help us continue to deliver the services our communities depend on.
