Responsible Dog Ownership Review-public meeting June 23

Give your opinions to the City's proposed changes to the Dog Bylaw.
The City of Toronto  will be hosting a public meeting next week on June 23rd 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at East York Civic Centre. 
Toronto residents are invited to participate. 

In November 2015, Municipal Licensing and Standards reported to Licensing & Standards Committee on the results of the Responsible Dog Ownership Review. These results have also provided us with insight for the next phase of the review.  

We committed in the last report to making by-law amendments, an education plan and enforcement strategy and reporting on those in the fall of 2016. One of the goals of the review is to provide recommendations on how the City can effectively respond to incidents of dog bites and dogs that may pose a risk to public safety. 

We will be consulting with the public again for the next phase of the review, particularly about the by-law changes. 

We will be hosting a public meeting next week on June 23rd 630:pm to 8:30pm at East York Civic Centre. Toronto residents are invited to participate.

If you cannot attend in person  the City will be adding the presentation from the meeting online as well as a summary from the meeting. 

After the meeting, City Staff will  be accepting feedback from residents by telephone and email until August 31, 2016.
