Toronto is Canada’s leading economic engine and one of the world’s most diverse and livable cities. As the largest city in Canada and fourth largest city in North America, Toronto is home to more than 2.9 million residents and is an international leader in technology, finance, film, music, culture, and innovation. The City consistently places at the top of international rankings due in part to investments championed by residents and businesses.

A global financial capital, Toronto has a thriving downtown that offers residents and visitors a full program of theatre, ballet, art, music, dining, shopping, professional sports, and lakefront recreation. The City has world-class universities, schools, hospitals, centres of innovation excellence, and parkland.

The ED will oversee the development and delivery of the City’s budget process including public consultation and coordinate the policy and business framework of short and long term Financial Planning, including the development of procedures and processes to ensure responsive service delivery.

Representing the City with respect to the budget/budget process as well as City financial planning and management policies is a key responsibility of the ED, all while developing strong working relationships with senior management and provincial government officials regarding financial matters.

Along with an undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline and ideally an accounting designation, the successful candidate will be a thoughtful and experienced leader, comfortable with the complexities of financial planning operations within a complex structure.
