The Committee of Adjustment will be having its first Virtual Public Hearing on June 3, with an agenda of applications from our Toronto & East York District. Additional hearing dates through June and July are posted in the public hearing schedules for each district. Applicants will be contacted when additional hearing dates are confirmed.

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.

Beginning June 3, 2020

All Committee of Adjustment hearings will be Virtual Public Hearings until further notice.

During the declared emergency in the City of Toronto, Committee of Adjustment Virtual Public Hearings will continue and are being conducted by electronic means through Webex, an on-line digital platform, and streamed on the Toronto City Planning YouTube Channel. These measures are necessary to comply with physical distancing requirements and a Provincial Order that limits attendance at public gatherings.
