The City Manager’s report recommending a new Commemorative Framework for Toronto will be considered by Executive Committee on July 12, 2022.


The Recognition Review project examines how the City honours history in public spaces. As part of the Recognition Review, the City is developing a new framework to guide how it commemorates public figures and events in monuments, street and place names. This framework will be presented to City Council for consideration in July 2022, and will be used to help select a new name for Dundas Street in early 2023.
