In 2015, Municipal Council, in conjunction with the Management Team, conducted a review of the organization's mission and values. They serve as a guide to daily action and enable employees to work together toward the same goals. At City Hall you can admire a work that symbolizes the process of developing the City's mission and values: a hot-air balloon by artist Tina Struthers. All the words on the balloon come from a cultural mediation activity with participation by City employees.
