“Toronto works because neighbourhood parks, libraries, community centres and beautification projects enrich our lives and bring us together.”

Gord Perks was first elected to represent Parkdale-High Park in 2006.

In his work as Toronto City Councillor, Gord advocates for affordable housing, childcare, public transit, parks and public spaces, responsible development, and safer streets for pedestrians and cyclists.

Gord has sat on the City’s Budget, Parks and Environment, Planning and Growth Management, Public Works and Infrastructure, Affordable Housing and Tenants Issues Committees as well as Subcommittee on Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation, Tribunal Nominating Panel, Toronto Atmospheric Fund, Board of Health, Toronto Drug Strategy, Board of Governors for Exhibition Place, Golden Horseshoe Food and Farming Alliance and the Greater Toronto Area Agricultural Action Committee.

Gord worked in the environmental movement from 1987 to 2005 with Pollution Probe, Greenpeace Canada, the Better Transportation Coalition, and the Toronto Environmental Alliance. His work was fundamental to Toronto’s blue and grey box program, smog plan, and pesticide by-law. He led the campaign for better transit that helped usher in the Ridership Growth Strategy and Transit City.

Gord is the principal author of the Canadian Green Consumer Guide, one of Canada’s bestselling non-fiction books. He has previously worked as an Environment columnist for Eye Weekly and was an Adjunct Professor with the University of Toronto’s Environmental Studies Department.

Gord has been a childcare worker, a janitor, a newspaper delivery kid, a Zamboni driver, and (briefly) a coal miner.
