7. City Council allocate $2,725,395 to the SmartTrack Funding Reserve Fund XR173, in accordance with Item 2018.EX33.1, Part 19.e. (April 24, 25, 26, and 27 2018); this figure is composed of the accumulated base of $1,813,702  plus $911,693, equivalent to 15 percent of all incremental municipal tax revenue arising from commercial and residential assessment growth in the Tax Increment Financing Zones for 2020, net of any Imagination, Manufacturing, Innovation and Technology (IMIT) Grants attributable to this assessment growth.

 

8. City Council direct the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer to report to Executive Committee, or directly to Council or a special meeting of Council if necessary, on the 2021 tax rates for school purposes, and the 2021 percentage of the tax decreases required to recover the revenues foregone as a result of the cap limit on properties in the commercial, industrial and multi-residential property classes (the 2021 ‘clawback’ rates).

iii. for taxpayers who are enrolled in the two installment program, the final instalment date be July 2, 2021; and

 

b. the collection of taxes for 2021, other than those levied under By-law No. 1038-2020 (the interim levy by-law) be authorized.

 

10. City Council adopt the application of the Creative Co-location Facilities subclasses for the Commercial, Commercial Residual and Industrial property classes for 2021.

 

11. City Council temporarily suspend the following eligibility criteria requirements for the Creative Co-Location Facilities Subclasses in the Toronto Municipal Code, Chapter 767, Taxation, Property Tax, in 2020 and 2021, in order to assist creative enterprises to remain in the subclass while the COVID-19 pandemic and public health emergency orders are obstructing them from meeting these criteria:

 

a. for the Tenant-Based Model:

 

i. that a minimum of 51 percent of the tenants of the property be tenant creative enterprises;

 

ii. that tenant creative enterprises must occupy at least 51 percent of the property's net rentable area; and

 

iii. that a minimum of 12 cultural programs be offered free of charge to the public at the property over a minimum of 10 months in each calendar year; and

 

b. for the Membership-Based Model:

 

i. that the operator must provide members access to and use of the following shared resources for a minimum of 8 hours per day, 5 days per week:

 

a. work space consisting of office or production space;

c. high-speed wireless internet access that meets minimum standards established by the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunication (CRTC); and

 

d. office equipment;

 

ii. that a minimum of 25 professional development programs, services or events must be offered to members, in the calendar year.

 

12. City Council amend the eligibility criteria requirements for the Creative Co-Location Facilities Subclasses in the Toronto Municipal Code, Chapter 767, Taxation, Property Tax, in 2021, to require that property owners pass on tax savings resulting from inclusion in the subclasses to their tenant operators of the live music venue within 12 months of each year's application deadline so as to remain eligible for future years. 

 

13. City Council authorize the appropriate officials to take the necessary actions to give effect to Council's decision and authorize the introduction of the necessary bills in Council.

Summary

At its meeting of February 4, 2021, the Budget Committee adopted Item BU30.1 headed "2021 Property Tax Rates and Related Matters" and made recommendations to the Executive Committee.

 

This report recommends the 2021 municipal tax ratios and tax rates arising from the concurrent adoption of the City of Toronto's 2021 tax supported Operating and Capital Budgets.

 

The 2021 tax rate increases arising from the 2021 tax supported Operating and Capital Budgets and the tax policy decisions recommended by the Budget Committee are as follows:

Financial Impact

The tax ratios and rates recommended in this report reflect tax policy decisions previously adopted by City Council as permitted and/or mandated by recent or pending Provincial regulatory changes, including:

 

- allowing one-half of the tax rate increase on the Residential property class to be applied to the Commercial property class;

 

- continuing to apply one-third of the tax rate increase on the Residential property class to the Industrial property class;

 

- continuing the City's tax ratio reduction policy to achieve a business tax ratio target of 2.5-times the residential rate, with a target date of 2023 (i.e. policy impact)  

 

- freezing of the tax burden on the Multi-Residential property class for 2021, as mandated by the Province

 

- making a property tax rate calculation adjustment to reflect the year-end assessment used in the notional property tax rate calculation to offset changes resulting from certain in-year assessment-related changes (i.e. adjustment for appeals)
 

The recommended local municipal general tax levy for 2021 is summarized as follows:

As a result of the postponement of the planned property tax reassessment for 2021 by the Province, assessments for the 2021 taxation year continue to be based on the same valuation date of January 1, 2016 that was in effect for the 2020 taxation year. Since 2020 was the last year of the reassessment phasing-in, 2021 taxation year is based on the same assessment values as 2020, without any assessment related changes. Correspondingly, the average residential property value for tax assessment purposes at the end of 2020 and for 2021 is $698,801.

 

A summary of the 2021 tax impacts on the average residential property, with the above noted adjustments and budgetary tax increases is as follows:

2d Auditor General's Office 2021 Operating Budget
Origin
(November 19, 2020) Letter from the Audit Committee
Recommendations

The Audit Committee recommends that:

 

1. City Council approve the 2021 Operating Budget for the Auditor General's Office in Attachment 1 to the report (November 5, 2020) from the Auditor General.

 

2. City Council approve the Auditor General's request to convert five temporary contract staff positions into permanent positions, resulting in a net zero budget impact, as outlined in the report (November 5, 2020) from the Auditor General.

Summary

At its meeting on November 19, 2020, the Audit Committee considered Item AU7.6, titled "Auditor General's Office 2021 Operating Budget" and made recommendations to City Council.

 

In accordance with Chapter 3 of the Toronto Municipal Code, the Auditor General is submitting her 2021 Operating Budget request to the Audit Committee for consideration and recommendation to City Council.

 

The attached report provides information relating to the Auditor General's 2021 Operating Budget request of $6.651 million. This is slightly less than the base budget request last year and is equal to 1/20th of one per cent, or 0.05 per cent, of the City's 2020 Approved Adjusted Budget. Within the requested base budget, the Auditor General is seeking to convert five temporary contract staff positions to permanent positions as part of an organizational restructure. This will result in a net zero budget impact; conversion costs will be absorbed in the base budget.

 

The budget request supports the Auditor General providing the same level of capacity to undertake value for money audits and investigations as in previous years. The Auditor General recognizes the City's ongoing financial pressures, especially with a focus on identifying savings and/or efficiencies. That being said, the benefits of performance audits that the Auditor General brings are that much more valuable. As highlighted in the Auditor General's Annual Reports, past audit reports have realized millions of dollars in cost savings, avoided costs, and identified revenue increases and new revenues.

 

The Auditor General's 2021 Work Plan is being presented to the Audit Committee at the same meeting as this 2021 Budget Request.

2j Exhibition Place 2021 Operating Budget
Origin
(October 26, 2020) Letter from the Board of Governors of Exhibition Place
Recommendations

The Board of Governors of Exhibition Place recommends that:

 

1. City Council transfer any surplus above budget target for 2021 to the "Exhibition Place Conference Centre Reserve Fund".

Summary

At its meeting on October 26, 2020, the Board of Governors of Exhibition Place considered Item EP14.2, titled "2021 Operating Budget" and made recommendations to City Council.

 

On August 7th, the City Manager's Office provided the preliminary 2020 Budget Process, Directions, and Guidelines for all City Divisions and Agencies for 2020 which is subject to change. Until such other direction is given the Board is following last years directive to all City Divisions and Agencies which is to submit a zero change budget year over year.

 

In preparing our budget plan, we have taken into consideration the financial impacts of COVID-19, and therefore have provided for a 0 percent COLA increase and 0 percent pay for Performance increases for 2021 per Council directives. There is still some uncertainty as to the future financial impacts and the extent of COVID-19, and it is still too early to assess 2021 operating impact. Exhibition Place staff have developed a 2021 status quo Operating Budget that is consistent with 2020 budget principles with a nil ($0) increase over the 2020 Operating Budget. This preliminary budget plan will not have an impact on the City property tax base year-over-year. Wages and benefits cost saving from delaying in hiring replacements for management staff who retired in 2020, temporary laid off of casual/temporary staff, and reduction in volume of base building maintenance and overtime.

 

Staff are optimistic that although the volatility of COVID-19 may not be completely gone, the exhibition business will return to some normalcy in a COVID-19 world, but are aware that measures may have to be taken again for 2021 with similar financial impact as in 2020. The measures taken to mitigate the risk of additional lost business or increase in costs due to COVID-19 is that all non-essential costs have been delayed/deferred, and discretionary expenditures such as travel, training, etc. has been eliminated. COVID-19 costs include both ongoing day to day service costs, as well as, restart/recover/rebuild costs.

Summary

At its meeting on January 13, 2021, the Toronto Police Services Board was in receipt of a report (December 29, 2021) from the Chief of Police with regard to the following budget requests:

 

- Toronto Police Service - 2021 Operating Budget Request;
- Toronto Police Service - 2021-2030 Capital Program Request;
- Toronto Police Service Parking Enforcement Unit - 2021 Operating Budget Request; and,
- Toronto Police Services Board - 2021 Operating Budget

Financial Impact

Toronto Police Service - 2021 Operating Budget

 

The table below summarizes the 2021 budget request by category. The budget development process, specific inclusions and year-over-year changes will be discussed in more detail in the 2021 Budget Details section of this report.

 

Table 1- Summary of 2021 Budget Request by Category

 

(See Table 1 titled "Summary of 2021 Budget Request by Category" in the Financial impact section of the report (January 4, 2021) from the Chief of Police.)

 

Toronto Police Service - 2021-2030 Capital Budget

 

Capital program requirements are funded from various sources, specifically:

 

a. debt issued by the City;

 

b. the Vehicle and Equipment Reserve, which is funded from the Service’s operating budget; and

 

c. development charges (D.C.) which are fees charged to developers to help pay for the cost of infrastructure required to provide municipal services in growing areas to qualifying Service projects – using D.C.s reduces the Service’s reliance on debt funding.

 

Similar to 2020, the City did not issue debt targets for the 2021–2030 capital program. Instead, consideration and approval of projects in the capital program will be based on need and value/benefits provided, project readiness and previous years’ spending rates and affordability.  Funding allocations will be prioritized against critical capital infrastructure spending and investments that support transformation and COVID-19 recovery efforts.

 

Table 1 below provides a summary of the Service’s 2021-2030 Capital Program request. Additional details can be found in Attachment A to the report (December 29, 2020) from the Chief of Police.

 

(See Table 1 titled "Summary of the 2021-2030 Capital Program Request (000’s)" in the Financial impact section of the report (December 29, 2020) from the Chief of Police.)

 

Toronto Police Service Parking Enforcement Unit - 2021 Operating Budget Request

 

The Parking Enforcement Unit (P.E.U.) 2021 net operating budget request is $49.2M net ($50.5M gross) which is a 0% increase over 2020 net operating budget.

 

Toronto Police Services Board - 2021 Operating Budget

 

This Toronto Police Services Board 2021 operating budget request is a net amount of $1,930,400, which represents an increase of 0% over the 2020 budget. 

 

Proposing a 2021 net operating budget that amounts to a 0% increase over 2020 recognizes:

 

a. the need for all City agencies, boards and commissions to do their part to assist the City of Toronto in managing the unparalleled financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, while

 

b. maintaining the required resources to support the Board in discharging its important statutory governance and oversight obligations during a time of considerable and ongoing police reform.

2m Honoraria for Public Members of Council Advisory Bodies
Origin
(January 28, 2021) Report from the City Manager
Recommendations

The City Manager recommends that: 

 

1. City Council approve honoraria for Council Advisory Body members for the remainder of this Council term as follows:

Financial Impact

The estimated maximum total cost of $66,000 gross and net for the honoraria for the Council Advisory Board members will be funded from within the 2021 Operating Budgets of Social Development, Finance & Administration, Economic Development & Culture and the City Manager's Office.

2n Supplementary Report to Budget Committee - Toronto Paramedic Services
Origin
(January 21, 2021) Report from the Acting Chief, Toronto Paramedic Services
Recommendations

The Acting Chief of Toronto Paramedic Services recommends that:

 

1. City Council authorize the Acting Chief, Toronto Paramedic Services, to implement the following four strategies in 2021, resulting in an increase of $10.1 million gross and net $0 to Toronto Paramedic Services' 2021 Staff Recommended Operating Budget:

 

a. Community Paramedicine Expansion to Support Home and Community Care (includes COVID-19 testing and vaccinations, time-sensitive, preventative support for clients returning home from scheduled hospital procedures);

 

b. Community Paramedicine Expansion to Support chronic and immediate healthcare needs of those awaiting Long-Term Care Placement;

 

c. Temporary Conversion of a significant number of Part-time Paramedics to Full-time Status; and

 

d. Modified Implementation of Year Two of the Multi-year Staffing and Systems Plan.

Summary

This report details four strategies proposed by Toronto Paramedic Services that are in addition to the current 2021 Staff Recommended Operating Budget, fully offset through new and expanded provincial funding:

 

- expanded Community Paramedicine programming (supporting Home & Community Care);

 

- expanded Community Paramedicine programming (supporting Long-Term Care);

 

- temporary conversion of a significant number of part-time Paramedics to full-time status; and

 

- modified implementation of year two of Toronto Paramedic Services' Multi-year Staffing and Systems Plan.

 

These strategies are recommended to support new programming and maintain staffing, both of which have become progressively necessary due to greater community spread of COVID-19, and staffing and healthcare/hospital pressures.

 

Since the beginning of December 2020, COVID-related activity has created more demand on paramedic and healthcare services. The Ministries of Health and Long-Term Care are supporting new programming focused on Community Paramedic-led Home and Community Care services as well as support for long-term care. In addition to the staff needed to support new programming, Toronto Paramedic Services is experiencing an increased number of staff on self-isolation/quarantine and occupational stress injuries, requiring backfill to maintain service delivery.

 

It is anticipated that the continuing healthcare capacity challenges will also result in significant ambulance offload delays in 2021 which will negatively impact ambulance availability in the community and response times to critically-ill patients. Maintaining ambulance availability will be dependent on securing additional staff to address these pressures.
 

The four strategies to be implemented through added provincial funding will support Toronto Paramedic Services in addressing the above COVID-19 related challenges.

Financial Impact

Toronto Paramedic Services recommends approval to add four (4) 100% Provincially funded strategies*, to the 2021 Staff Recommended Operating Budget as shown in the table below.

 

(See Table in Financial Impact section of the Supplementary Report (January 21, 2021) from the Acting Chief, Toronto Paramedic Services.)

 

The Province has confirmed 100% funding for the first and second Community Paramedicine initiatives. Funding for items #3 ("Paramedic Conversion (PT to FT)") and #4 ("Staff Plan Year Two") will be submitted to the Province as 2021 COVID-19 expenses, requesting 100% funding as these are new pressures on paramedic service delivery directly related to the pandemic. Toronto Paramedic Services has received verbal commitment from the Ministry of Health (MOH) that this funding will be approved for 2021 as it is clearly a response to system-related COVID-19 pressures. In addition, all of these costs were 100% funded in 2020. In the unlikely event that this funding is not approved by the MOH, Toronto Paramedic Services will defer 2021 contributions to the equipment and vehicle reserves which will have no impact on service delivery.

 

Community Paramedicine - COVID-19 and the Temporary Conversion of part-time Paramedics to full time are 2021 initiatives only, and as such, will have no 2022 budget impact. The Community Paramedicine - LTC Program will be fully operational for the full year in 2022 and will remain 100% funded by the Ministry of Long-Term Care for a net $0 budget impact in 2022 and 2023. Annualization of the Staff Plan Year Two will increase gross expenditures in 2022 by $6.2 million. Toronto Paramedic Services will submit these costs for 100% Provincial funding in 2022 – these positions will be used to address ongoing pressures on ambulance availability as a result of continued healthcare capacity challenges at hospitals as they deal with a backlog of services due to the pandemic, thereby impacting hospital occupancy. Based on the confirmed MOH support for COVID-19 related pressures in 2020 and 2021, Toronto Paramedic Services is confident that 100% funding will be provided for 2022, consistent with past experience.

     

The Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer has been provided the financial impacts associated with this program for review as part of the 2021 budget process.

2o Toronto Public Library Board - 2021 Operating Budget
Origin
(January 29, 2021) Letter from the City Librarian
Recommendations

The Toronto Public Library Board recommends that:

 

1. City Council endorse the City staff recommended 2021 budget of $204.117 million net ($221.576 million gross) which represents a $7.422 million net ($4.242 million gross) increase, or 3.8%, over the 2020 operating budget, comprised of:

 

a. a base budget increase of $7.122 million net ($4.242 million gross), or 3.6%, comprised of:

 

i. base budget funding (excluding COVID-19 impacts) of $1.189 million net ($2.138 million gross), or 0.6%, and

 

ii.. COVID-19 related funding of $5.933 million net ($2.104 million gross), or 3.0%; and

 

b. budget enhancement funding of $0.300 million net ($0 gross), or 0.2%, for the elimination of Children’s fines.

 

2. City Council consider additional budget enhancement funding totalling $0.319 million net and gross, as summarized in Attachment 1 to the report (January 25, 2021) from the City Librarian, to support:


a. Digital Literacy for Seniors for a cost of $0.212 million (annualized cost of $0.723 million); and

 

b. Community Librarians Outreach for a cost of $0.107 million (annualized cost of $0.412 million).

Summary

Community Librarians Outreach

 

While working onsite in partner agency locations, community librarians work closely with agency staff and clients. The intent is for the librarians to learn about and understand these clients’ information needs, and respond by providing the best possible mix of the full range of library services and programs. Community librarians have worked in many settings including Toronto Shelter, Support & Housing Administration, The Toronto East and South Detention Centres, Toronto Employment and Social Services. A 2021 budget enhancement would allow TPL to focus on delivering services in shelters, work with agencies to support individuals recently released from the correctional system and focus on confronting anti-black racism by working with agencies dedicated to serving black communities in Toronto.  The Community Librarians Outreach program would add 2 positions in 2021 and an additional 2 positions in 2022, for a cost of $0.107 million in 2021, and the full year cost of $0.411 million in 2022.

 

Digital Literacy for Seniors

 

This supports social connectedness by expanding digital literacy programs for seniors, both in branches and in the community. The in-branch program targets disadvantaged seniors who are socially isolated, with low income, and lacking digital literacy and likely both devices and home connectivity. The community-based program is designed in partnership with Toronto Community Housing (TCHC) to engage socially isolated seniors by bringing regularly scheduled library services, delivered by a community librarian, directly to the TCHC seniors’ buildings where they reside. Both in-branch and community programs will address the diverse needs and challenges among Toronto’s seniors as identified in the City of Toronto Seniors Strategy. The Digital Literacy for Seniors program would add 2 positions in 2021 and an additional 2 positions in 2022, for a cost of $0.212 million in 2021 to support the community-based program in TCHC locations, and equipment for eight branches would support the expansion of the in-branch program, with the full year cost of $0.723 million in 2022.

 

The Community Librarians Outreach and Digital Literacy for Seniors will have meaningful impact on Toronto residents and in particularly, the most vulnerable, while supporting the City's Poverty Reduction Strategy and the Seniors Strategy.  The Board appreciates your consideration.

Financial Impact

The City staff recommended TPL 2021 operating budget of $204.117 million net ($221.576 million gross) represents a net budget increase of $7.422 million, or 3.8%, over the approved 2020 operating budget and is comprised of $1.189 million net ($2.138 million gross), or 0.6%, to maintain existing services and service levels while also modernizing TPL’s digital capabilities, $5.933 million net ($2.104 million gross), or 3.0%, for budget pressures related to COVID-19, and budget enhancements totalling $0.300 million net ($0 gross), or 0.2%, for the elimination of Children’s fines as summarized in Table 1 in the report (January 25, 2021) from the City Librarian.

 

The Director, Finance and Treasurer has reviewed this financial impact statement and agrees with it.

2p COVID-19 Financial Impacts on Corporations of the City of Toronto
Origin
(February 2, 2021) Report from the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer
Recommendations

The Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer recommends that the Budget Committee:  

 

1. Direct the Board of Directors of Build Toronto, Toronto Port Lands Corporation, Casa Loma Corporation, Lakeshore Arena Corporation, Toronto Community Housing Corporation and Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre, in consultation with the City of Toronto's Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, to provide the final 2020 financial impacts of COVID-19 on their 2020 Operating and Capital Budgets and operations, detailing any modifications to their programs and initiatives to address COVID-19 at their 2020 Annual General Meeting.

Summary

At its meeting on September 30, 2020, City Council, as Shareholder, received the 2019 Audited Financial Statements of City corporations and partnered corporations and directed their Boards of Directors, in consultation with the City of Toronto's Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, to report on the impacts of COVID-19 on corporation Operating and Capital Budgets and operations, detailing any modifications to their programs and initiatives to address COVID-19 by the first quarter of 2021.  

 

This report responds to Council's direction above and is being provided at this time to inform the 2021 Budget process.  It provides an overview of COVID-19 impacts on the operations of Build Toronto, Toronto Port Lands Company, Casa Loma, Lakeshore Arena Corporation and Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre.    Toronto Hydro Corporation has also committed to providing a separate report by the first quarter of 2021 as directed.    The COVID-19 impacts on the Toronto Community Housing Corporation have been noted in City variance reporting and are included in their 2021 Budget Notes submitted to Budget Committee on January 14th, 2021. 

 

Similar to City Programs and Agencies, City corporations have experienced disruptions to their operations resulting in significant financial impacts as a result of COVID-19.  The provincial orders for the closure of establishments and non-essential businesses resulted in facility closures, decreased revenue streams, and an increase in bad debts on commercial rents.  On January 11, 2021, the province of Ontario declared a second State of Emergency in response to fast-rising rates of COVID-19 among residents, imposing new public health restrictions including a mandatory "stay-at-home" order.   Facilities remain closed to the general public or alternatively, are operating under limited capacity.   The challenges faced in 2020 continue to persist as provincial orders remain in place. 

 

The City has provided emergency funding, and in some cases loan deferrals for a three month period to City corporations that have experienced cash flow shortages in 2020.  These supports will continue as needed in 2021 until operations resume and become sustainable through their normal revenue streams.  Emergency funding to City corporations forms part of the City's COVID-19 response plan. The City will continue to monitor the status of any outstanding loans and guarantees and bring forward any necessary actions for Council consideration that may arise from any future loan servicing deficiencies.

 

The impacts of COVID-19 will continue into the 2021 fiscal year.  As a result, a high degree of uncertainty persists surrounding the full economic impact of the situation. The unpredictable nature of the spread of the disease makes it difficult to determine the length of time that corporations' operations will be impacted. Consequently, the full effect that the abrupt decline in economic activity will have on corporations' operations, assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses is not yet known.

 

In responding to Council's direction to report on COVID-19 impacts on their Operating and Capital Budgets and their operations, City corporations have faced challenges in assessing impacts prior to the completion of their year-end statements, and consideration by their respective Boards. As such, some of the information contained in this report is limited.

 

This report recommends that City corporations report back to Council with additional information on the impact of COVID-19 on their 2020 budgets and operations at their respective 2020 Annual General Meetings, which typically take place in the second quarter of 2021.

Financial Impact

There is no financial impact resulting from the adoption of the recommendation in this report.

 

Since mid-March, the City corporations, consistent with City of Toronto Programs and Agencies have experienced significant financial impacts in the form of added costs, revenue losses and increase in bad debt expenses as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Any operating surplus or deficit incurred by the corporations in the 2020 Fiscal Year will be reported and captured as part of the accumulated surplus at year end and will form part of the City of Toronto's 2020 Consolidated Financial Statements. 

 

Lakeshore Arena contributes 50% of its net operating income before amortization to a reserve fund set up for Lakeshore Arena's Capital needs - Lakeshore Arena Capital Reserve Fund.  Lakeshore Arena is projecting a $1.7 million deficit in 2020.  City of Toronto has also provided Lakeshore Arena Corporation with $1.4 million in emergency funding as of December 31, 2020 and has deferred loan payments of $0.061 million due in 2020 for three months.

 

Casa Loma does not pay dividends to the City of Toronto. In lieu of dividends, contributions are made to the Casa Loma Capital Maintenance Reserve Fund, held by the City of Toronto. Casa Loma is projecting a $0.262 million surplus in 2020. A contribution to the reserve is not projected.

 

The Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre (TPASC), as a partnered corporation, does not pay dividends or make contributions to the City of Toronto. TPASC is projecting a 2020 Operating Surplus of $2.6 million before the contribution to the capital reserve fund. With the standard capital contribution of $3.9 million, the net operating results are projected to be a $1.3 million deficit. 

 

Financial impacts to the Corporation capital budgets were not provided. 

 

The Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer has reviewed this report and agrees with the financial impact information.

EX21.3

ACTION 

 

 

Ward: All 

Response to Ontario Regulation 286/09 Budget Matters - Expenses
Origin
(January 26, 2021) Report from the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer
Recommendations

The Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer recommends that:

 

1.         City Council receive this report for information.

Summary

Ontario Regulation 286/09 "Budget Matters - Expenses" (Regulation) permits the City of Toronto (City) to exclude the following expenses from its annual budget:

 

- amortization expenses;
- post-employment benefits expenses; and
- solid waste landfill closure and post-closure expenses.
 

In addition, the Regulation requires that the City:

 

- Prepare a report about the excluded expenses which contains:

- An estimate of the change in accumulated surplus as a result of the exclusion of the above expenses.
- An analysis of the estimated impact of the exclusion of these expenses on future tangible capital asset funding requirements.
- Adopt the report prior to the adoption of its annual budget.
 

This report is presented to Committee and Council in response to the Regulation.

 

The City's annual balanced budget outlines the funds required to support the City's anticipated operating expenses for the fiscal year, along with funds required to support the planned acquisition or development of tangible capital assets.  The balanced budget which is allowed to be prepared using a cash basis accounting versus the accrual basis used for financial reporting purposes excludes the above expenditures, estimated at $1.5B for 2021.  The excluded expenses result in a reduction to the City's accumulated surplus balance.  The City's accumulated surplus represents the amount the City has invested in its tangible capital assets.  These expenses represent non-cash accounting expenditures required for financial reporting purposes under accrual basis of accounting.

Financial Impact

There are no financial implications as a result of this report. 

 

The expenditures excluded from the City's budget do not require immediate cash outlays; rather, they represent financial reporting allocations or increases to liabilities that will be exhausted at a future date.  The $1.5B estimated value of these expenses for 2021 will reduce the City's accumulated surplus balance, comprised mainly of the net value of the City's tangible capital assets.
