Better Budget Toronto aims to inform and influence Toronto’s budget-making process as a means to building a better city. We’re committed to sparking debate and hosting participatory budget events, with a near-term focus on influencing Toronto’s 2014 municipal elections.
What We Stand For
Transforming Toronto’s budget process to embody citizens’ aspirations for a better city and a more engaged society.
We’re guided by a commitment to openness, transparency, clarity, and accessibility, and by a desire to harness citizen engagement, incorporate long-term thinking, and ensure fiscal sustainability.
On February 5, 2015, Alex Mazer, co-founder of Better Budget TO, spoke to Matt Galloway of CBC Metro Morning to talk about the City of Toronto’s new pilot on participatory budgeting and how to improve the city budget.
