City of Toronto hosts consultation to present taxicab industry Framework for Change to taxicab drivers|

Taxicab drivers are invited to attend a consultation session to discuss the Framework for Change report, outlining opportunities for improvement to Toronto’s taxicab industry.
Framework for Change provides direction on issues of accessibility, driver safety, technology, cabstands, fares and licensing structure.
This consultation session was added to accommodate drivers who were unable to participate at the last session due to venue capacity issues.
The consultation session will be held on Wednesday, November 20 at the Allstream Centre, Ballroom A (Former Automotive Building), 105 Princes' Blvd,. from 10 a.m. to noon. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. Drivers must show a valid D01 licence.
The City's Municipal Licensing and Standards division has undertaken a comprehensive review of the taxi industry, involving extensive consultations and research over a two-year period, to address issues within the industry.
In addition to this consultation session, feedback can be shared by:
