New sign-in procedure for visits to Toronto councillors at City Hall, North York Civic Centre and Scarborough Civic Centre starts on May 3
Beginning on May 3, a new visitor sign-in procedure for accessing councillors’ offices at City Hall, North York Civic Centre and Scarborough Civic Centre takes effect.

Under the new procedure, visitors to councillors’ offices or meeting room facilities in councillors’ areas will be required to wear an identification badge that can be obtained from the Council reception areas. The new procedure will also apply to City staff who do not have access to councillors’ office areas.

In an effort to enhance security and safety, in October 2009, Toronto City Council adopted a report that included new measures for the protection of staff, councillors and members of the public for Council Office areas. One of these measures was the adoption of an official visitor sign-in policy.
