Online Consultation on Sidewalk Labs’ Proposal for Quayside

Online consultations are now LIVE.

There is a “Quick Survey” for those who may be short on time and a “Detailed Survey,” which has more specific questions and places for you to share written feedback.

We appreciate that it will take some time to review the materials provided by Sidewalk Labs. As a result, this online consultation will be active throughout the Waterfront Toronto public consultation process. Feedback received over the summer will help us design the second round of public consultation planned for this Fall.

Quayside Dialogue Box: Consulting on Next Generation Communities

Quayside 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 Quayside SAC has already had three meetings since its inception in late 2018.

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
