City Council enacted a bylaw to adopt the Downtown Plan Official Plan Amendment (OPA 406) on July 27, 2018. OPA 406 includes amendments to Section 2.2.1 and Map 6 of the Toronto Official Plan, a new Downtown Plan and future updates to the existing planning framework for Downtown. Accompanying infrastructure strategies are also available. OPA 406 has been submitted to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing for review and approval pursuant to Section 26 of the Planning Act. Information regarding this review process can be accessed from the Environmental Registry of Ontario.


TOcore is an initiative to prepare a new plan for Toronto’s Downtown. In addition, a series of five infrastructure-related strategies have been developed to implement the plan. 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.
