Join our Community Advisory for the future Bentway Islands

June 17, 2024

We are using a civic lottery to form a Community Advisory Committee that will provide feedback on our next phase of physical growth: the Bentway Islands!

A civic lottery is a randomized method of selecting interested individuals from a community to ensure diverse representation – it is a benchmark for democratic participation in community design initiatives. 

about the project

To apply for the Committee and be entered into the lottery, you will be asked demographic questions about yourself in the application linked below. Applications will then be randomly sampled to facilitate the formation of a representative group. 

Please note all of your personal information will be kept absolutely confidential in line with the City of Toronto’s data privacy policies. 

about your involvement

As a member of the Community Advisory Committee, you will:  

  • Participate in two community meetings: 
  1. October 2024: to review the project’s guiding principles and space program. 
  2. March 2025: to review preliminary designs; 
  • Learn first-hand about the project and contribute your perspective; 
  • Provide insights on important neighbourhood issues and needs; 
  • Receive an honorarium of $200.00 CAD
