The Pandemic and Beyond: Perspectives from Chief Administrative Officers in the GTA
Regional governments in the Greater Toronto Area face historic challenges. The unprecedented pressures caused by the COVID-19 crisis built upon growing and perennial issues such as housing affordability, infrastructure and transit development, inclusive growth and refugee resettlement. The post-pandemic environment requires a careful examination of the state of play now, including in fiscal terms and in terms of what is going well and what needs to be the focus of future policy initiatives.

Chief administrative officers (CAOs), as the most senior public servants in the GTA’s regional governments, are at the forefront of efforts to grapple with all of these issues, and others.

On Tuesday, December 6, 2022, the CAOs of York, Peel and Durham regions will outline their current fiscal situations and provide a fiscal outlook. They will explore their region’s COVID-19 response, and set out some future goals, including in the context of complex intergovernmental relationships across the GTA and with the provincial and federal governments.

Speakers:
Janice Baker the Chief Administrative Officer for the Region of Peel.
Elaine Baxter-Trahair is the Chief Administrative Officer for The Regional Municipality of Durham.
Bruce Macgregor is the Chief Administrative Officer for the Regional Municipality of York

Moderator:
Drew Fagan is a professor at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy.

This event will be held in-person and online via Zoom.

Dec 6, 2022 04:30 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
