Visualizing Ontario's Municipal Finance Data (data visualization project)

The Institute on Municipal Finance and Governance (IMFG) at the University of Toronto and the Institute without Boundaries (IwB) at George Brown College have worked together on a data visualization pilot project that brings municipal finance data to life. Leveraging the municipal finance expertise of IMFG and the design experience of the IwB and School of Design at George Brown College, this collaborative project is intended to highlight key issues in Ontario’s municipal finance and illuminate them in compelling and accessible ways.

Using the Financial Information Returns (FIR) database and other relevant data sources, the pilot project has created a series of visualizations for a sample of Ontario cities around selected research questions, including a prototype “dashboard” framework for municipal finance data.
