Why are we consulting the public?

Feedback from the public is critical to informing Waterfront Toronto’s thinking about Quayside. It is our responsibility — informed by consultation with the public, technical experts, and all three levels of government — to determine if the ideas in the MIDP are in the public interest and respond to the objectives for Quayside that we agreed to with Sidewalk Labs in July 2018 (as reflected in the Plan Development Agreement). This survey is one of several ways we are sharing information about the Draft MIDP and seeking public feedback. All of this work will inform a decision by Waterfront Toronto’s Board of Directors on whether, or how, to move forward with the MIDP and Sidewalk Labs.

Written submissions to Waterfront Toronto. For feedback to be considered by Waterfront Toronto prior to the second round of public consultation, it must be received by July 31, 2019. Please send it to quayside@waterfrontoronto.ca

We appreciate that it will take some time to review the materials provided by Sidewalk Labs. As a result, this online consultation will be active throughout the Waterfront Toronto public consultation process. Feedback received over the summer will help us design the second round of public consultation planned for this Fall.
