Effective July 1, 2021, the Committee of Adjustment will roll out across the city a redesigned Notice of Public Hearing Sign, first piloted in Scarborough District last year. The sign has a new look and will be printed in a larger format on durable weather-proof material.

Toronto City Council has appointed a Committee of Adjustment consisting of citizen members. They regularly hold public hearings to consider applications for minor variances and consents. Learn more about minor variances and consent applications.
