PortsToronto takes great pride in being part of the community it operates within – largely the Toronto waterfront – and is committed to being a good neighbour by engaging with those who live, work and operate in the area.

In doing so, PortsToronto builds and maintains positive relationships and a strong connection with its neigbours and stakeholders through open dialogue, transparency, public participation and two-way communication. 

PortsToronto conducts a number of community engagement initiatives including:

  • Community Liaison Committee
    Since 2011, PortsToronto has conducted quarterly meetings with community residents and stakeholders to expand engagement and ensure Billy Bishop Airport is responsive to the needs of its neighbours. Click here to learn more about the Community Liaison Committee, view past meeting minutes and to see a meeting calendar.
  • Waterfront Stakeholder Meetings
    PortsToronto conducts routine meetings with its institutional, business and residential neighbours along the waterfront, including the Bathurst Quay Neighbourhood Association and York Quay Neighbourhood Association, the Harbourfront Community Centre, the Toronto District School Board, the Waterfront BIA, and City of Toronto service providers like Parks, Forestry and Recreation department and the TTC (Toronto Transit Commission).
  • Ongoing Communication
    Billy Bishop Airport is committed to providing timely and up-to-date information advising the local community of upcoming projects and other events that may impact the neighbourhood via Public Notices, email and social media.
