City Sign Bylaw - Public Consultations

The City of Toronto is looking for input from the public and business owners on potential changes to the City of Toronto Act and the Toronto Sign Bylaw. The proposed changes would increase the City's ability to implement and enforce the Sign Bylaw.

At the January 8, 2015 meeting of the Planning and Growth Management Committee, staff recommended that Council request the province to amend the City of Toronto Act so that the city's Sign Bylaw could apply to signs and billboards that existed prior to the current Sign Bylaw being enacted.
