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

Notice of Commencement of Environmental Assessment

Broadview and Eastern Flood Protection Project, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, the City of Toronto, and Waterfront Toronto

In conjunction with the City of Toronto and Waterfront Toronto, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) is commencing a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to seek flood protection for an area of urban land near the intersection of Broadview Avenue and Eastern Avenue, north of the Metrolinx railway corridor, east of the Don River (project area). This study will build upon the outcomes of the Don Mouth Naturalization and Port Lands Flood Protection Project, and the Port Lands and South of Eastern Transportation and Servicing Master Plan, to address these 8 hectares of urban land that remains at risk to flooding under the regional storm.
