This is an update to the previous blogs:

In February 28, 2013, the Planning and Growth Management Committee requested staff to report on the impact of illuminated signs on the quality of life in residential areas and recommendations for illuminated signs in residential areas.

  • The purpose of this study is to review:
    • the potential opportunities for the location of these electronic signs as well as analyze their potential impacts on the public realm; and
    • The impact of illuminated signs on the quality of life in residential areas.
  • This study and other related work on electronic signs will contribute to the development of new regulations for electronic signs in the City of Toronto Sign By-law.
    • This work will also inform how electronic signs and displays could be incorporated in transit shelters in the City of Toronto’s Street Furniture program.

Based on the study findings, changes to Toronto’s sign regulations have been proposed and were introduced at the December 4, 2013 meeting of the City’s Planning and Growth Management Committee.

Please note that the Toronto Sign By-law does not permit sign copy to be projected onto any surface.

  • A projected image or projection sign is text or other content that is projected onto a surface by a projector.

There are two ways to give your input on proposed changes to sign regulations related to electronic and illuminated signs and billboards.
