On June 4, 2019, the Ontario Government passed the “Getting Ontario Moving Act,” which assigns responsibility for planning some rapid transit in Toronto to the Province of Ontario. As a result, the Relief Line project has now been replaced by the Ontario Line project. With this change, Metrolinx will lead a renewed consultation and exploration process, which will also include additional Environmental Assessment work. As this new process gets underway, we
hope that you will continue to participate in engagement opportunities.
Metrolinx is hosting four public open houses to introduce the Ontario Line later this month. Fifteen potential stations are proposed between Ontario Place and Ontario Science Centre, with links to GO Transit, the Eglinton Crosstown LRT, and TTC Lines 1 and 2. The objective of the information sessions will be to provide the public with an overview of the project, the process, and information on future engagement opportunities.
The information sessions will be hosted in the last two weeks of January. The same information will be available at each event. Each event will be from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm.
Public Open Houses:
Thursday, January 23rd at Ontario Science Centre (770 Don Mills Rd)
Monday, January 27th at Ryerson University, Tecumseh Auditorium (55 Gould St)
Tuesday, January 28th at Metropolitan Community Church (115 Simpson Ave)
Wednesday, January 29th at Exhibition Place, Beanfield Centre, Room 201 ABC (105 Princes’ Blvd)
If you have any questions about the meetings or the project, please contact Metrolinx directly at OntarioLine@metrolinx.com.
The City of Toronto is developing a Digital Infrastructure Plan to help guide decisions on how Toronto will evaluate and regulate digital technologies and data use for City services and other proposals.
Digital technologies – including “smart city technologies” – are bringing Toronto new benefits and ways of working to create an efficient, connected community. They are also associated with a number of broader public issues including privacy, transparency, accountability, public ownership, equity and protection of the public interest.
At this phase of consultation, the public is invited to learn more about digital technologies and to provide input on guiding principles and policies that will inform the City’s Digital Infrastructure Plan.
The public can attend and provide feedback at one of the upcoming sessions:
• December 7 – McGregor Park Community Centre (2231 Lawrence Ave E.), 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
• December 9 – Toronto City Hall, Council Chamber (100 Queen St W.), 6:30 to 9 p.m.
• December 12 – North York Central Library (5120 Yonge St.), 1:30 to 4 p.m.
The December 9 meeting will be livestreamed on the City’s YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/thecityoftoronto.
An online consultation survey will be available at https://www.toronto.ca/community-people/get-involved/public-consultations/#item/746 starting December 7 until December 19. Those unable to attend a consultation can email input or questions to email@example.com.
The Digital Infrastructure Plan will be developed through further consultations and opportunities for public participation in 2020. To sign up to be notified about upcoming consultations, and for more information about the City’s work on smart cities, visit
The consultation supports Toronto City Council’s direction to develop a City-wide policy framework and governance model associated with digital infrastructure and a work plan for implementation. It is also aligned with Council’s direction to sign on to the declaration of Cities Coalition for Digital Rights.
