Applications invited for Toronto's Taxicab Advisory Committee
The Municipal Licensing and Standards (MLS) division is creating a Taxicab Advisory Committee as part of the City of Toronto's ongoing review of the taxicab industry in Toronto.

The advisory committee will facilitate input and communication among the taxicab industry, the public and the City of Toronto. Applications are now being accepted for this committee.

The advisory committee will provide advice to the City of Toronto through the Executive Director of MLS, advising on taxi industry issues such as consumer protection, driver/passenger health and safety, and the economic viability/sustainability of the industry.

Committee members will:
• identify and provide advice on emerging issues and concerns within the taxicab industry, as described in the committee's mandate
• provide advice on issues referred by the Executive Director of MLS
• participate in working groups as necessary and as approved by the Executive Director of MLS, and
• provide objective, inclusive and informed advice and recommendations.

The City of Toronto seeks to involve people who reflect the diversity of the community whenever it engages with the public. Applications from women, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and visible minority group members are encouraged.

Completed application forms must be received by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, December 21.
