Toronto residents are invited to share their views on prohibited animals
The City of Toronto is reviewing prohibited animal regulations and is inviting members of the public to share their views at two public meetings or through an online survey.

The first consultation meeting will be held on Friday, April 28 at City Hall, Committee Room 3, 100 Queen St. West, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The second consultation meeting will be held on Monday, May 1 at Metro Hall, Room 310, 55 John St., from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Key areas of discussion include the process to add or remove animals from the prohibited animals' list, as well as identifying the extent of use and possibility of regulating prohibited animals in educational programming at birthday parties, parades and other activities.

A staff report with recommendations is expected to go to the City's Licensing and Standards Committee for consideration later this year.

More information about the review and the online survey is available at
