Dr. Stephen Hwang will explore some of the implications for research related to health equity.

The Toronto City budget process is starting again soon. It kicks off with a proposed budget in November (one that usually includes a number of suggested cuts to services). Then, people have an opportunity to weigh in through analysis, deputations, and contacting City Councillors and the Mayor. Then, City Council votes on a final budget in early 2018.

Join us as Beth Wilson, Senior Researcher at Social Planning Toronto tells us:

  • What’s in the proposed 2018 Toronto City Budget
  • Implications for health and social services
  • Ways to intervene

Presented by the Centre Talks Committee and Feedback Thursdays group from the Centre for Urban Health Solutions.
