Consultation for Rooming House Tenants – Wednesday, December 5

Posted on December 3, 2018


The City is holding a consultation at PARC next Wednesday for tenants of dwelling rooms (rooming houses, boarding houses) on a draft Official Plan amendment to address the lost of dwelling rooms across the city.

The amendment includes provisions related to protections and support for rooming house tenants affected by the loss of their housing due to demolition (


The City is interested in hearing from tenants who could potentially benefit from this new policy. Specifically, they want to know what kind of protections & support (the right to return to a unit in the new building? Moving costs? Help finding new housing? A rent subsidy?) would be helpful and necessary if faced with losing their housing due to demolition.

A flier for the consultation is attached.


Consultation details:

Wednesday, December 5th: 5:30-7:30pm, with pizza & intro at 5pm

PARC (1499 Queen St. W), upstairs 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

Please call our office at 416-392-7919 or email us at, should you have any questions or comments.
