Throughout construction the City has worked actively to keep local community members and businesses informed and involved in project stages.

Field Ambassador & Email List

Your Field Ambassador is the main point of contact for questions and concerns about reconstruction of the Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration.

Construction Notification

During construction notification is provided to inform local residents and businesses of temporary disruptions to local roads and traffic. Notification about construction is sent via Canada Post delivery and to the email contact list.

Past Activities and Events

During construction the City engaged with the local community members and businesses through a variety of activities including a Public Event, Speaker’s Panel, creation of a Community Artwork, Jane’s Walks, Street Naming, and Construction Liaison Committee. Details on some of the activities are described below:

Street Naming

Following extensive public engagement, three new street names were approved by Etobicoke York Community Council December 3, 2019 as part of the Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration. Thank you to everyone who took part in helping to name the new streets!

  • Adobigok Pathway: Adobigok (“Ah-Dobe-Eee-Gook”) means “where the alders grow” in Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe). The Mississauga First Nation called Etobicoke Creek and the area around it “Adobigok”.
  • Biindagen Trail: Biindagen (Been-Dih-Genn) means ‘enter’, ‘come in’ or ‘welcome’ in Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe). This name was proposed as an encouraging phrase that welcomes residents to the new Etobicoke Centre.
  • Jerry Howarth Drive: Jerry Howarth is a long-time Etobicoke resident and voice of the Toronto Blue Jays for 36 years, from 1982 to 2018. He was one of the first sports broadcasters to refuse to use team names that were offensive to Indigenous peoples, bringing the issue to the forefront in traditional media. Consent was given by the named party.

Construction Liaison Committee

The mandate of the Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration Construction Liaison Committee (CLC) was to provide community input and advice to City staff throughout the duration of construction work. The CLC is an advisory committee and not a formal commenting or decision-making body of the City of Toronto.

Throughout construction, membership in the CLC reflected affected groups adjacent to construction locations including the following local interests:

  • Business Improvement Area (BIA)
  • Resident’s Associations
  • Community Organizations
  • Neighbouring Properties
  • Ward Councillors
  • City Staff: Project Manager, Field Ambassador, Senior Public Consultation Coordinator

Public Event – May 11, 2017

Environmental Assessment

An extensive public consultation program was carried out as part of the Six Points Reconfiguration Environmental Assessment from 2003 – 2007, and two community events helped shape the final design for the Reconfiguration in 2013 and 2014.
