Its a typical government enviroment
Governement workers get a bad rep. Some are lazy and fall into the day in day out routine. Any job is what you make of it. I have been with the City for many years. I understand we are paid well and have great benefits. I'm happy to have the job security.

The City of Toronto is a large organization with over 44 Divisions. The diversity of the people, roles and operations is a positive aspect of working at the City.

Great place to have a big impact on the lives of the people living in Toronto
ICity ofToronto is a place to work for people who want to have an impact on the lives of people living there. I worked on many projects: community centers, employment places, civic centers, daycares and senior homes, public health and historical buildings. I walked under the City in most of the pipes including intakes under the lake, I flew planes taking aerial photos and climbed in trenches inspecting water main construction.
Prosworking on many interesting projects and to see them used
Consvery demanding and busy
