Three years ago, Waterfront Toronto set out to create an ambitious plan for a next-generation sustainable community at Quayside. Since then, we have heard from thousands of people who have shown their support for greater housing affordability, climate sustainability, transit connectivity, and economic opportunity. 

We now also find ourselves in a very different world than when we began our work on Quayside. COVID-19, growing social inequality, economic insecurity and mounting climate crisis have made us all take pause and consider what kind of world we want to be living in.

Over the last several months, we’ve been reflecting on the goals we initially set out to accomplish at Quayside in light of what we’ve learned through our planning work with Sidewalk Labs and feedback the public has provided to-date.

This survey is designed to gather input on our revised project goals and to make sure the future of Quayside continues to align with what matters most to you about where you live, work and play.

Stay informed: Watch this video (9 minutes) overview about the revised project goals for Quayside or read this project backgrounder.
Ask questions: Join one of our three informal interactive sessions being held on October 15, 16 and 21. Click here to register.

This survey will take approximately 15 minutes and will be open for responses until October 25.

Question Title

1. Below are three project goals for Quayside: inclusive, resilient and dynamic. Please let us know the extent to which you support each of the following statements:

Inclusive: For too many Torontonians, the city is becoming an unaffordable place to live and increasingly difficult to navigate. It is important for neighbourhoods to be inviting to people of all ages, sex, race, class, income, religion, ethnicity, ability, language, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Question Title

2. Resilient: Resiliency  is the ability to respond to, and thrive under, new and ongoing challenges—environmental, social and economic.

Question Title

3. Dynamic: In order to have a successful waterfront, we need to draw people to the water and provide interesting things for them to do and see during all four seasons. A dynamic place is one that is inviting, interesting and lively year-round.
