2.       City of Toronto Official Plan Review
The Official Plan is Toronto’s road map for land use. It sets out long-term vision, shared values, and policies that help guide decision-making on land development, economic growth, the environment, and more.

The Official Plan review process, which the City is calling Our Plan Toronto, presents an opportunity to address, through planning policy, a number of the growth related challenges facing Toronto today and in the future. These challenges include: housing affordability, climate change, mobility, public health and others that will help inform the City’s response to, and recovery from, the current global pandemic.

Our Plan Toronto will focus on identifying where growth should go, and what is needed to support healthy, complete communities that are thriving and inclusive.
