Click here to be directed to a bulletin regarding the study.

Summer 2017 Update

In December 2015, the Ministry of Transportation suspended its work on the Environmental Assessment of the Greater Toronto Area West Highway Corridor (GTA West). An advisory panel was appointed to assist the ministry in reviewing the GTA West project. The panel was tasked with providing advice on the need for the GTA West corridor, in light of recent changes in government policy and transportation technology that could impact the demand for travel.

The panel has completed its advice and has submitted a report to the Minister of Transportation. The Minister is reviewing the panel’s advice and is committed to providing an update on the future of the GTA West Corridor shortly.

While the government is developing its response, lands in the GTA West focused analysis area will continue to be protected.

Meaningful public and stakeholder consultation are important in shaping the outcome of this study. The Project Team has developed a comprehensive consultation program that will:

  • Provide stakeholders with access to study information in a timely manner that enables them to provide input and participate in a meaningful way.

  • Engage the broader community, and give consideration to all input and differing points of view.

  • Promote a cooperative and productive consultation environment that recognizes the value of dialogue and that everyone may not agree with every decision.

The consultation program will utilize innovative strategies and methods to maximize the outreach and engagement of study stakeholders. It will include Public Information Centres (PICs), community workshops, as well as meetings with municipal and agency staff, members of the public, First Nations and Métis communities. Information on these events will be posted on this website to inform stakeholders as to when and where these events will take place. Display materials used at these events will also be made available through the website. Refer to the Public Information Centres and Community Workshops page for more details.

A key element of the consultation program will involve the development of Community Value Plans (CVPs) in consultation with members of the local communities. The CVPs will be developed during the preliminary design phase once the preferred route for the new corridor has been identified. They will feature context sensitive design that will transform community goals and expectations into concrete design proposals.
