The City of Toronto Official Plan was approved by the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) in 2006. The statutory Five Year Review subsequently began in 2011. Due to the size of the City and the breadth of policy matters in the Official Plan, Council approved conducting the Official Plan Review in stages by thematic area in order to enable the public to focus more clearly on proposed Plan changes. The review for some thematic policy areas of the Official Plan is complete. The updated policies have been adopted by Council and are either in effect or are being adjudicated at the OMB. Certain thematic policy areas are currently in the review process.
