In 2021, the City merged Public Works, Facilities Capital Projects, Corporate Security, and Energy Management into a new Operations Department. 

Operations Services consists of:

  • Facilities Capital Projects – responsible for managing capital lifecycle replacements for all City facilities, renovations and new construction projects.
  • Corporate Security – responsible for the centralized management and integration of security into our facilities, events and infrastructure.
  • Energy Management – responsible for the City’s Corporate Energy Management Plan that is the City’s policy for energy efficiency and savings across all City facilities and operations.

Public Works is responsible for the repair, maintenance and construction of roads, winter control operations, the installation and maintenance of playgrounds, boulevard and parkland grass cutting, looking after green space, and managing the City's municipal fleet.

The Operations Centre is located at 1955 Clements Road, next to the Pickering Soccer Centre.
