The Downtown Energy Strategy

Last updated: 4 April 2019
The Downtown Plan is a 25-year vision that sets the direction for the city centre as the cultural, civic, retail and economic heart of Toronto, and as a great place to live.

The Plan is a response to rapid growth in the core that is placing pressure on physical and social infrastructure. The Plan provides a renewed planning framework for 17 square kilometres—the whole of Downtown.

The Downtown Plan is supported by five infrastructure strategies:

• Downtown Parks and Public Realm Plan

• Downtown Community Services and Facilities Strategy

• Downtown Mobility Strategy

• Downtown Water Strategy

• Downtown Energy Strategy

These strategies set priorities for infrastructure investment, and guide implementation of the Downtown Plan, which encompasses the area from Bathurst Street to the Don River and from the waterfront to about the CP rail corridor/ Rosedale Valley Road. Each strategy outlines a series of transformative ideas and actions intended to align infrastructure planning with long-term growth.
