Public Meeting – December 4

Join us on December 4 to learn more about the Port Lands Flood Protection project.

We’re three years into this seven-year project that will renaturalize the mouth of the Don River and create a new river valley through the Port Lands. When this project is complete, Toronto will have a new island, new parks and green spaces and new roads and bridges – the foundation for future communities just minutes from downtown.

Learn more here.

Where can you find our team?

We have held regular public meetings to provide updates on the design and construction of Port Lands Flood Protection. Our large model of the project has travelled to three of these meetings since 2018. (Watch a video of the design team assembling the model here.) These meetings are always followed up with online materials and surveys to make sure people who couldn’t attend can still send us feedback. We’ve also created new opportunities to get your feedback that are easy, informal and fun by popping up in various neighbourhoods.

Check back here for upcoming opportunities to chat with our team in your neighbourhood or attend a public meeting. You can also follow us on Facebook to get invites to our events or sign up for the Waterfront Toronto newsletter. You can also contact us any time by email or through this online form.

When is the next community consultation?

These meetings take place at key points throughout a project to allow us to get public feedback before we make important decisions. Whenever possible, presentations are live streamed on Facebook or available for viewing after the meeting. Check this page for upcoming meetings. You can also follow us on Facebook or sign up for the Waterfront Toronto newsletter to get invites to our events.

Is there a record of the public feedback you receive?

We log all the feedback we hear from you on social media and at meetings and pop-ups. After our community consultations, we often produce summaries of the feedback we heard. Follow the links below to find summary reports from the most recent round of public consultation.

Port Lands Flood Protection Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC)

The SAC is a small, focused group made up of representatives from interested and affected stakeholders and organizations as well as those with specific expertise related to the project.

The SAC plays a critical role by:

  • Acting as a sounding board for the project team to share and discuss ideas and findings
  • Providing guidance, critiques and suggestions on proposed approaches, concepts and materials
  • Proving a sense of the broader community’s reactions and concerns and how they might be addressed
  • Providing a forum for two-way communications between member’s organizations and the project team

Port Lands Flood Protection Construction Liaison Committee (CLC)

This is a structured forum for residents, businesses, landowners and other special sector groups in the vicinity of the project area to discuss issues related to construction. The mandate of this committee is to liaise with the project team, monitor and report on the impacts of construction during the project and bring forward any issues that may arise.
