Toronto Deputy Mayor & ICLEI Executive Committee Member, Joe Pantalone

Toronto renews the ICLEI World Secretariat Host Agreement

August 02, 2006

The City of Toronto, the host of the ICLEI World Secretariat since 1991 after ICLEI’s formation in 1990, has once again generously renewed the host agreement for another five years.


ICLEI Secretary General Konrad Otto-Zimmermann was in council chambers to attend the vote. Upon witnessing the vote, Secretary General Otto-Zimmermann said: “The unwavering commitment and generosity shown by the city of Toronto has been, and continues to be, a foundation which ICLEI’s successful work is built upon.”


Deputy Mayor Joe Pantalone, Member of ICLEI’s 2006-2009 Executive Committee, successfully championed the cause of continuing the city’s support. Deputy Mayor Pantalone told Toronto City Council: “This is an honour for Toronto – it gives the city a much-needed international presence.”


The World Secretariat is looking forward to continuing – and strengthening - its partnership with the City of Toronto.
