When: Saturday, May 30 9:30 am – 4:00 pm Where: Evergreen Brick Works Event sponsor The event Better Budget Day 2015 is a free, day-long, participatory workshop focused on open, democratic, and effective budgeting in Toronto. The purpose of the event is to identify ways to improve Toronto’s budget process, and to help groups from across the city better understand and engage with the budget. Better Budget Day
Better Budget TO is focused on public education, policy and analysis around budget issues. We conduct reviews of Toronto’s budget: how it’s made, who it serves and who has a say. We compare it to best budgeting practices from around the world. We bring together Torontonians to discuss better budgets and what that means for us and our city.
Better Budget TO believes that municipal budgets should be visionary, participatory, engaging, and evidence-based. Toronto should model city budgeting that invites citizens to participate in and understand the process and outcomes of a democratic, open and evidence-based city budget.
