Being informed is a great first step to participating in decision making. There are many opportunities for you to find out what is happening in Toronto and many different tools to help with that.
The City is required to give notice to the public on a wide range of matters including planning, development and heritage activity, fees and budgets, property sales and other subjects. The City gives notice through the newspaper, mail, or personal service, depending on legislation it also gives information through the new online Public Notice portal.
Subscribing to City Council and committee email updates is a great way to stay informed. You can also subscribe to receive email updates about other important topics you’re interested in such as news and information, road closures and community involvement.
The City of Toronto Archives keeps records that document the history of Toronto such as City Council bylaws, aerial maps, photographs, neighbourhood plans, assessment rolls and architectural drawings. Education programs for school and community groups are also available upon request.
