As part of the policy development process, the City is looking for feedback from renters, housing agencies and organizations, the development industry, housing advocates, resident associations and the general public on how inclusionary zoning should apply in Toronto. We want to ensure that the policies are:

  • predictable, clear, and consistently applied;
  • flexible, equitable and needs-based; and
  • partnership-based.

Public Meetings & Events

Do-it-Yourself Workshop

The City of Toronto has hosted public and stakeholder meetings for Inclusionary Zoning but we understand that we can’t reach everyone across the city through these meetings.

We have bundled our engagement material into a convenient Do-it-Yourself (DIY) Workshop Kit to assist you in hosting your own workshop with members of your community or organization.

The concept is simple, download the DIY Kit and start organizing your workshop. You can host it anywhere, but we suggest a location where people can sit and provide feedback on the priorities for Inclusionary Zoning.

Next, reach out to Christine Ono by email or by telephone at 416-392-1255 for information on Train-the-Trainer sessions available in July and how to get reimbursed for pizza for your participants.

Following the event, please send your DIY Workshop notes back to the City by August 26, 2019.
