On June 5, 2019, the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing issued a Notice of Decision approving Official Plan Amendment No. 406 (the Downtown Plan) with 224 modifications. The Minister’s approval is final and not subject to appeal.


TOcore is an initiative to prepare and implement a new plan for Toronto’s Downtown. A series of five infrastructure-related strategies have been developed to support implementation. These strategies cover community facilities, parks and public realm, mobility, energy and water. The Downtown Plan is a 25-year vision that sets the direction for the city centre as the cultural, civic, retail and economic heart of Toronto and as a great place to live. The Downtown Plan provides a blueprint to manage growth, sustain liveability, achieve complete communities and ensure there is space for the economy to grow. The In-Force Downtown Plan incorporates the modifications. There is also a redline version which shows the Minister’s modifications. The Decision also revised Section 2.2.1 of the Official Plan, amended Map 6 and added a new Map 6A. A summary and analysis of the modifications and their impact is also available.
