City Planning is continually working to broaden participation in city building. Are you interested in shaping Toronto’s future – how it looks, how it feels, how it moves and the opportunities it provides in terms of jobs and services to its residents? We would like to hear from you.

Here you can find information on how to provide input on proposed development applications, area-based planning studies and policy initiatives. Below is a list of upcoming community consultation events, guidance on how to participate and details on who to contact for further information.

Web links and call in numbers for e-consultation meetings will be posted on the day of the event.

We encourage you to review the materials on this web page, which are intended to help you have a good experience while participating in upcoming consultations.

Thank you for your interest in planning a great city together.

Guidelines for City Planning Community Meetings

  • One voice at a time. Be direct and frame questions to specific speakers.
  • Be brief and limit yourself to one question or comment at the time, there will be other opportunities to engage.
  • Be a good listener and keep an open mind.
  • Raise hand to ask questions. For the instructions on how to use the “raise hand” function refer to the Participation Guide.
  • Be respectful. City of Toronto is an inclusive public organization. Racist or other forms of discriminatory, prejudicial, or hateful comments and questions will not be tolerated.
  • Engage with high energy, be personable as you would in person!

What if I did not get a chance to ask my question during the meeting?

You can always send your comments and questions to the City Planning Staff or Councillor’s Office after the meeting. The contact information can be found on the notice that was sent to you and on this webpage. A member of the project team will contact you with answers to your questions.

Will the meeting be recorded? How can I have access to the recording?
