Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) is warning of risks due to landslides along the Scarborough Bluffs. This poses a risk to path users along the top of the Bluffs, as slides can occur at any moment.

TRCA cautions members of the public who walk along or up/down the Scarborough Bluffs and waterfront areas.

A portion of the Waterfront Trail immediately west of the Guild Park and Gardens construction access is impassible due to a recent landslide. Updates will be posted as available HERE

Dear Scarborough-Guildwood Neighbours, 

I would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year for 2020!

Starting off right, on Wednesday January 8th, I brought forward a number of items to the Scarborough Community Council for consideration. This included a request to re-open an item heard in December 2019 which asked for the reduction of speed limits on roads in Ward 24, in particular around schools. The purpose of this item is to bring awareness and address the very important safety concerns on our roads. SC11.8 – Scarborough Minor Arterial and Collector Road Speed Limit Reductions as Part of Vision Zero Speed Management Strategy.

Also part of the City’s Speed Management Strategy (Vision Zero) is the installation of Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) cameras and signage on our streets.

Toronto's enhanced bylaws for Vehicles for Hire are in effect. These changes improve safety on our roads and keep providers more accountable.

  • Requires 3 year driving experience
  • Created mandatory City-approved training program
  • Required "Watch for Bikes" notices

Full bylaw is available here.

The 2020 Rate Supported Budget was launched on November 15. City services impact your life every day. Each time you visit a recreation centre, borrow a book from the library, and have your garbage or recycling picked up, drink clean water from the tap, ride the TTC or have emergency services rush to your aid – you are using a City of Toronto service. Your voice matters. Find dates of Committee and Council Budget Schedules and meetings here.
