The City of Toronto’s Graffiti Management Plan is a proactive and cooperative approach to managing graffiti vandalism in the public realm while continuously supporting graffiti and street art that adds artistic vibrancy to Toronto’s streets. The Graffiti Management Plan contains four strategic elements.

  1. Establishing a coordinating body for graffiti management activities.
  2. Support and recognition for permitted graffiti and street art, including investment in programming that encourages the development of local artistic talent.
  3.  Support for victims of graffiti vandalism.
  4. Ongoing enforcement against illegal tagging.

Research and experience have provided evidence that success in realizing the plan and achieving continuous improvement is dependent on the simultaneous implementation of all four parts of the plan, including establishing new programs to meet evolving needs.
