City of Toronto Public Consultations

You are invited to attend the City of Toronto’s public consultations on the following topics:

1. Temporary Signs By-law Review

The review aims to modernize the by-law and make it easier for the public to understand the rules governing temporary signs, such as A-frame signs, garage sale signs, mobile signs, new development signs, open house signs and real estate signs. In addition, the review is considering regulations to permit temporary signs that display messages of public interest and construction-related signs on private property.

July 22, 6 to 8 p.m. at City Hall, Second Floor, Committee Room #3

3. Payday Loan Establishments

Payday loans are short-term, unsecured, small-dollar loans, but they are an expensive way to borrow money. The City of Toronto is reviewing the licensing and cap of payday loan establishments in the city of Toronto, and wants to hear from you.

July 25, 6 to 8 p.m. at North York Civic Centre, Members Lounge
