August 25, 2015 – Update on the City of Toronto’s Rooming House Review
As you know, the Municipal Licensing and Standards Department of the City of Toronto, in conjunction with City Planning and with the support of numerous other divisions, is conducting a Rooming House Review.
An important part of the Rooming House Review is public consultation meetings with stakeholders and concerned Torontonians. Many of you participated in the public meeting that we held in Ward 39 in April 2015.
The consultation phase of the review is complete and the consultant’s report has been written.
I invite you to review the report and provide your feedback through an online survey found at: http://www.toronto.ca/roominghousereview
A draft rooming house strategy is expected to be presented to the Executive Committee of Toronto City Council in December 2015. If the draft strategy is approved at Executive Committee, the next steps will include another series of consultations with stakeholders and the public expected to be held next year. A final report is expected to go to Executive Committee in June 2016.
