Sidewalk Toronto

Working Groups

We think that local and international experts who are independent of Waterfront Toronto or Sidewalk Labs have a valuable role to play in helping to shape our plan. Small working groups will meet periodically with our project leads throughout the planning process to help strengthen and refine our approach. A summary report of their discussions will be made publicly available.

Public Realm

The Public Realm group will explore how to maximize public spaces, make those spaces available in all seasons, and help residents use public space to build community.
