GTA West Corridor Review

Opportunity for Input

The GTA West Advisory Panel conducted consultations between October 11, 2016 and November 11, 2016.

Please note that the consultation period for the GTA West Corridor Review is now closed. The panel would like to thank all who submitted comments during this period. All comments are being reviewed and considered by the panel to be incorporated in its advice.

The consultations sought input from municipalities, Indigenous communities, interested stakeholders and the general public on the GTA West Corridor.  In particular, the panel asked for feedback on the following questions based on the panel’s Terms of Reference:

  • How is your organization planning for the introduction and adoption of new technologies, such as autonomous vehicles and electric vehicles, and how do you think they may change travel and transit demand in the Greater Toronto Area?
  • How does your organization foresee car sharing services, such as Uber, influencing travel and transit demand in the Greater Toronto Area?
  • How do you foresee recent Provincial policy directions, such as Moving Ontario Forward, Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan, and the Coordinated Review of Provincial Plans, impacting the Environmental Assessment recommendations including the GTA West Corridor?
  • Are there other infrastructure improvements that could be made to address goods movement in the Greater Toronto Area?
  • Are there any other recent studies related to other infrastructure that are relevant?
  • Should the GTA West Corridor be protected for other transportation needs?
  • What are your views on the appropriate path forward for the Environmental Assessment?

The GTA West Advisory Panel has also reviewed the work to date on the GTA West Environmental Assessment process, including the consultation record, to inform its advice.
