In July 2021, City Council voted to rename Dundas Street and directed staff to develop a transition plan to support Dundas Street residents and businesses impacted by the name change. Originally, this plan was to include resources and strategies to make the name change as easy as possible for local residents and business owners. Council also requested that staff develop a full cost recovery program to support businesses on Dundas Street.

In December 2023, City Council approved “Sankofa Square” as the new name for Yonge-Dundas Square and initiated plans to rename three other City assets that included the name Dundas (Dundas and Dundas West subway stations and the Jane/Dundas Public Library). Council also directed the City Manager to pause work on the remaining recommendations from the July 2021 decision, including the renaming of Dundas Street, until Council provides direction to resume. Further updates will be provided if the Dundas Street renaming project resumes and a resident and business transition plan will be developed at that time.
