Special Committee on Governance Consultations – Share your ideas for decision making in Toronto

In addition to the formal Special Committee on Governance meetings, the City is holding public sessions, launching an online survey and creating a self-guided kit for residents or organizations who want to host their own discussions to gather ideas for the Special Committee.

The goal of the consultation is to support residents who want to:

  • learn about City Council’s governance, including how the City and Council identifies issues, engages the public and makes decisions,
  • ask questions and discuss ideas with staff, members of the Committee and other residents,
  • contribute their ideas for the Committee to consider.

5 public sessions will be held in June. At each session, the first hour will be an Open House where residents can drop in anytime to learn more about Toronto’s governance, speak with City staff, ask questions, and give their individual ideas.

After the Open House, and a short presentation, participants are welcome to stay, discuss their ideas with each other in small groups and develop recommendations for the Committee and staff to consider. Participants can complete a workbook at the session, give a brief public statement or complete an online version of the workbook. City staff will be on-hand throughout the session to record remarks.
