Municipal Shelters Public Consultation

Posted on November 5, 2018

This is to provide an update on November city-wide consultations being undertaken on Municipal Shelters.

Municipal Shelters

The current zoning regulations permit municipal shelters in most zones, with two locational conditions:

o 250-metre separation distance from another shelter

o requirement to be located either on a major street or on an intersecting street if the lot is within 80 metres of the major street

City staff were directed by City Council, at its meeting on December 5 to 8, 2017, to look at zoning by-law amendment options to provide more opportunities for locating shelters across the city. At its meeting on June 7, 2018, the Planning and Growth Management Committee directed staff to hold city-wide public consultations on the proposed options to increase the as-of-right zoning permissions for municipal shelters (PG30.8).

All meetings are from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and a short presentation will be held at 7 p.m.

Thursday November 22 Etobicoke Civic Centre, Main Boardroom

Secondary Suites Public Consultation

Posted on November 5, 2018

This is to provide an update on November city-wide consultations being undertaken on Secondary Suites

As-of-Right Zoning for Secondary Suites

Secondary Suites have been permitted across the City since 2000; however, existing zoning regulations only permit the creation of a secondary suite five years after the primary dwelling is constructed, and do not permit secondary suites in all townhouses.

City staff were directed by City Council, at its meeting on December 5-8, 2017, to report to Planning and Growth Management Committee in the second quarter of 2018 on a range of measures, including policy, regulatory and financial measures, that could provide incentives to facilitate the creation of additional secondary suites in Toronto. At its meeting on July 5, 2018, the Planning and Growth Management Committee directed staff to hold open houses to consult on draft zoning framework to support the creation of secondary suites; and report back with final recommendations and zoning by-law amendments in the second quarter of 2019 (PG31.12).

All meetings are from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and a short presentation will be held at 7 p.m.

Thursday November 15 Metro Hall, Room 310

Wednesday November 21 North York Civic Centre, Committee Room 1

Monday November 26 Etobicoke Civic Centre, Main Boardroom

Tuesday November 27 Scarborough Civic Centre, Committee Room 1
