The Toronto Noise Coalition is a group of residents, community organization, businesses and resident associations who are joining together to call for an effective and enforceable noise bylaw for Toronto. The old noise bylaw is now under review.
Join us and help us get a better bylaw – one that reflects the City’s changing landscape and takes into account new developments in acoustic technology.
A recent survey commissioned by our Coalition ranks noise as the third most important issue for Torontonians, after only (1) Cost of Housing and (2) Public transit. Yet only 8% of those surveyed were even aware that the City’s noise bylaw is currently being reviewed.
Different parts of the city have different noise issues, but the one common view is that noise is a growing concern and the present by-law does not do enough to protect us.
According to a 2016 City Staff Report (Municipal Licensing & Standards), noise complaints to the city increased an astounding 176% from 2011 to 2015!
The Toronto Noise Coalition plans to do something about this.
