  • housing,
  • policing,
  • garbage collection,
  • transportation,
  • public transit,
  • education, health,
  • recreation and leisure,

New Arrivals to the city are encouraged to go the Citizen and New Arrival Information Centre at the main floor of City Hall or to call 311 for more information on their new home town.
