Update 8 | November 2016
Second phase of consultation launched October 31 – we want to hear from you!
The Facilities Master Plan relies on extensive engagement to ensure that recommendations reflect the needs of residents. In our first phase of consultation (November 2015 to June 2016) we heard from over 3,500 people. Their input informed the plan's principles and emerging directions, and is being used to identify facility needs. Learn more at What We Heard.
On October 31 we launched our second phase of consultation to check in and get more information on what facility improvements are most important to people. Our goal is to engage as many people as possible, and to get feedback from a wide range of people and groups that represent Toronto's diverse communities.
There are many different ways to participate:

Toronto City Council approved the Facilities Master Plan Progress Report at its meeting on October 5, 6 and 7
This report gives a high level overview on the progress of the project to date, a summary of findings from the first phase of consultation, and outlines upcoming consultation activities for this fall.
The report introduces four guiding principles – equity, quality, sustainability and innovation – that will be applied to facility planning, funding, design, construction and operation. The report also describes three emerging directions for the Facilities Master Plan, which have been informed by the consultation findings to date:
- Renew and upgrade existing facilities
- Address gaps and growth-related needs
- Work with others and explore new opportunities
