The Prime Minister’s Office announced on Thursday afternoon that City Manager Peter Wallace will become the next secretary of the Treasury Board with the Government of Canada. Wallace is leaving his role at the City of Toronto at the end of March, and has recommended that Giuliana Carbone, one of the city’s deputy city managers, be appointed interim City Manager. Wallace held a number of  senior executive roles at the Ontario Public Service before joining the City of Toronto in 2015.

Earlier on Thursday, Wallace attended the city’s Aboriginal Affairs Committee meeting to respond to questions about a new Indigenous Affairs Office that is being created at city hall, until the city’s top bureaucrat excused himself to leave early, as Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam began her presentation for an idea for an innovation business district in Toronto.

Before leaving, Wallace offered a reason for his departure to Wong-Tam.

“Councillor, I have to run off in a few minutes and check on one thing. I’ll be back shortly after that.”

He did not return.
