Official Plan Review
Public Consultations

YOU are invited to help plan the future Toronto
The City of Toronto Official Plan has to be reviewed and updated every 5 years to ensure that it conforms to provincial plans. Planning initiated that process in 2020 and has developed a Work Plan that extends into 2022, in order to meet the required submission date of July, 2022 to the provincial government. This review has been named Our Plan Toronto.  

Toronto is growing and changing. Together we can create a plan for our shared future. Let’s plan for the next 30 years and beyond – from housing to the economy to climate change and more. The success of this process depends on engagement with communities including with stakeholders, equity-seeking groups, Indigenous communities, the general public and internal City divisions.  

Residents’ Associations, as important stakeholders, are invited to a series of upcoming meetings to hear the City's thoughts on key Official Plan policy areas under review.
You are invited to attend any of the meetings noted below. You are asked to register in advance so that the City can appropriately design each meeting. You are welcome to attend any combination of meetings that interest you. Meeting summaries will be made available following each meeting. All meetings will continue to be virtual in accordance with the City of Toronto’s policies until further notice.
