Toronto casino consultation feedback closes on January 25
The City of Toronto's casino consultation closes at midnight on January 25, when all feedback forms must be received by the City or submitted online.

Members of the public can get information, download materials and provide their input at To date more than 11,000 feedback forms have been received. The City's public open-houses, held during the past two weeks, attracted over 1,100 participants from across the City, many of whom completed feedback forms at the sessions.

The consultation process is intended to gather input, including the public's views and opinions on a casino generally, on possible locations for a casino, and what the public would like City Council to consider when making a decision on this matter.

The feedback will assist City Manager Joe Pennachetti in the preparation of his report to Toronto's Executive Committee expected in March. The findings of the consultation will be made available to the public on the City's web site.

Interested residents may also submit written comments or make a deputation when the report is considered by the City's Executive Committee. To register for updates about the Casino Consultation please visit add your email address and check the box beside the “Toronto Casino Consultation”.
