Relocation of Court Services
The City of Toronto’s Court Services will need to move out of its leased facilities at the northeast corner of University Avenue and Dundas Street West early in 2020 due to redevelopment of the site by the owner.
This location houses the following operations:
- 481 University Ave.
- 70 Centre Ave.
- 137 Edward St. (counter service for parking tickets, fines or court case information)
The moves will not require any special effort by people to figure out where they need to go for payment of fines or for court appearances. Please attend the service location as identified on your City-issued notice.
Counter Service Relocation of 137 Edward St. to 60 Queen St. W
In early 2020, the counter services at 137 Edward St will move to 60 Queen St. W, the City-owned “Old City Hall” provincial courts building. The final date for that move hasn’t been confirmed yet. Once it happens, people who want to pay a ticket or fine in person, or ask about a court case, will be able to visit the Old City Hall site, which is just a few blocks south and east of the current University/Dundas location downtown. It is well served by public transit, including the nearby Queen subway station. The building offers a wheelchair-accessible entrance/exit at Albert Street on the north side of the building in addition to the main entrance facing Queen Street.

Administrative Office Relocation
Another move in the works involves Court Services’ administrative offices, which are generally used by the stakeholders. Those offices will move to a temporary downtown location in early 2020.
Future Home of Court Services
All these moves will be temporary. Eventually, Court Services’ downtown operations will all move to a new facility now under construction on the north side of Front Street as part of the North St. Lawrence Market redevelopment – expected to be completed in 2022.
