Media Advisory - Governing Toronto public consultations now under way
The Governing Toronto public consultations, meetings for residents to hear and share ideas about how their city could be governed, are currently taking place across Toronto.

Mayor David Miller and members of City Council are inviting Torontonians to learn about and discuss the role of Council, the Mayor, Councillors, Committees, Community Councils, and the public. City Council is expected to consider the governance changes at its meeting in May 2006. The implementation of a new governance structure will take place after the November 13, 2006 municipal elections.

The first two public consultations took place at Etobicoke Collegiate Institute and at St Lawrence Hall. The two remaining public meetings are:

Memorial Hall, 5100 Yonge St., below the North York Public Library (Yonge n/w of Sheppard)
Monday, March 6, 7 to 9:30 p.m.
Transit: North York Centre Station

Scarborough Civic Centre, 150 Borough Dr., (n/w of McCowan & Ellesmere),
Wednesday, March 8, 7 to 9:30 p.m.
Transit: Scarborough Centre Station

Registration is required and seating at the consultations is limited. To register, call Access Toronto at 416-338-0338; TTY Line 416-338-0889; weekdays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The discussion at the public sessions will be based on recommendations put forward by the Governing Toronto Advisory Panel in its report, “The City We Want, the Government We Need.” Torontonians can also email their views to, or read more about Governing Toronto on the web at
