City of Toronto Graffiti Management

Graffiti Management Plan

The City of Toronto's Graffiti Management Plan seeks to support graffiti art and other street art that adds vibrancy and artistry to our streets while balancing the need to eliminate graffiti vandalism which can have a detrimental impact on property owners and neighbourhoods.

StART Support

The City of Toronto StART Support Mural Program assists private residential and commercial property owners who are experiencing repeated graffiti vandalism problems on their property by purchasing the materials required to install graffiti art or mural on their property.

Artist Directory

StART's Artist Directory was created with the purpose of profiling local Toronto artists who are interested in working on graffiti art and street art projects, and it serves to foster connections between these artists and individuals or businesses that have a project in mind. Click here to find an artist.
