Have your say on election sign rules

As directed by City Council on September 30, 2020, City staff are undertaking a review of the election sign rules to identify opportunities for further improvement of the bylaw. This review will not include posters, temporary signs (for example, A-frame, open house, and mobile signs), and other signs regulated under the Sign Bylaws.


Share your experiences with election sign rules through the online survey: Election Signs Bylaw Review by March 3, 2021. Your input will inform a report expected at the Economic and Community Development Committee meeting in spring 2021. More information at


Have your say on fireworks rules

Staff have also been asked to complete a review of the Fireworks Bylaw to explore opportunities for enhanced public education to support safe and compliant use of fireworks. Staff will review current regulations related to the sale and discharge of fireworks and also consider environmental protections and policies in other jurisdictions.


Residents can share feedback on fireworks regulations in Toronto via an online survey: Fireworks Bylaw Review by March 5, 2021. The results of this survey will inform a report expected at the General Government and Licensing Committee in spring 2021. More information at


Thank you,
