Skip to content City of Toronto

Since 2006, the City of Toronto has been a leader in municipal green roof policy. Toronto’s Green Roof Strategy and Green Roof Bylaw have stimulated a local green roof industry and created a new roofscape for the City. In 2016, Toronto was recognised for the first timeĀ as having the most green roof area installed of all North American cities according to the 13th Annual Green Roof Industry Survey.
