Responsible decision-making requires that Waterfront Toronto consider the input it receives from public consultation in the context of other factors such as budgetary constraints, and ultimately make decisions that are in keeping with Waterfront Toronto's strategic direction as mandated by the Government of Canada, the Government of Ontario and the City of Toronto.
Definition of Public Consultation: Public consultation is the two-way exchange of information between the Corporation and the public before decisions are made. It is an open and accountable process allowing individuals and groups to participate in the decision-making process of the Corporation.
Process for Public Consultation
When Waterfront Toronto is considering a project of significant public interest, the Corporation identifies and notifies interested parties in a timely manner and, through public notice, provides these individuals and groups with sufficient information so that they can meaningfully consider the project. At the same time, Waterfront Toronto provides an opportunity for interested parties to make their views known. The process and structure of consultation varies depending on the project.
