The City of Toronto provides services that have a direct impact on your daily life and sometimes it is not clear how government works, where to find information, or how to express your opinion.
My Local Government, It’s For Me is a great place to start if you would like to learn about your local government, the decision making process, and how to get involved. Information is available in English and 24 additional languages that will help you become informed, have your say, and serve your city. This initiative started in 2016 as a response to residents’ requests on how they can get involved in their local government.

On May 28, 2019, Planning and Housing Committee directed that proposed Official Plan policy directions for inclusionary zoning be endorsed as the basis for consultation and requested City Planning staff to report back in Q4 2019 with the findings from the consultation, the results of any further analysis, and prepare recommended Official Plan inclusionary zoning policies.
Inclusionary zoning is a land use planning tool that would enable the City to require new residential developments to include affordable housing units. Inclusionary zoning is one policy solution to help address the housing needs of Toronto’s low-income and moderate-income households (earning roughly between $35,000 and $88,500 a year depending household size).
City Planning staff will be hosting four public meetings to consult on proposed policy directions for inclusionary zoning. These meetings will provide an opportunity for the public to learn more about inclusionary zoning and share ideas and feedback on how this new affordable housing tool should apply in Toronto.
A community meeting notice with the meeting information is attached should you wish to post this notice. Public meeting details are as follows:

In May 2017, Toronto and East York Community Council (TEYCC) requested that the Director of Transportation Services provide information on the potential for policy changes to allow for the expansion of the Residential On-street Permit Parking Program to all local streets. Community consultation on this potential change took place in Toronto and East York in April and May 2018.
In December 2018, with ward boundary changes to all wards in the City of Toronto, Ward 4 welcomed a new area – the former Ward 13 – that was not included in the community consultation.
With that in mind, I would like to invite you to a community consultation meeting to discuss the expansion of on-street permit parking in Ward 4.
Join City staff to learn about the City wide Permit Parking Program. Staff will be available to answer any questions or concerns about on-street permit parking.
Ward 4 Permit Parking Community Consultation
When: June 17, 2019 from 7pm-8:30pm
