About the City of Thunder Bay Program and Service Review:

The City of Thunder Bay engaged Grant Thornton LLP to conduct a Review of City Services. The purpose of the review was to gain further understanding of specific services provided by the City and provide information for Council and administration to make informed strategic choices regarding those services. Responding to pressures for greater efficiency, effectiveness in service delivery, improved performance and sustainability, the review identified current services and their delivery, potential changes to delivery methods, and/or service levels, and recommended opportunities for improvement or cost-effectiveness.

The review process identified opportunities and provided recommendations for changes, expansion, reduction, elimination and alternate service delivery models.

Phase One was completed in November 2019 and the Phase Two Report in June 2020.
