Ontario to Review Greater Toronto Area West Corridor Project
Click here to be directed to a bulletin regarding the study.

Spring 2016 Update

In December 2015, the Ministry of Transportation suspended work on the environmental assessment of the Greater Toronto Area West Highway Corridor (GTA West), in order to review the work undertaken to date and to ensure the project still aligns with recent changes in government policy and emerging technologies.

A panel has been tasked with conducting a strategic assessment of the alternatives to meeting future transportation demand and other transportation infrastructure needs for passenger and goods movement in the GTA West corridor in light of these changes.

Work has commenced, the Panel is expected to provide its advice, and we will provide an update as soon as it’s available.

Consultation with regulatory agencies, municipalities, First Nation and Métis communities, members of the public and other interest groups will be undertaken during this study. Discussions with these stakeholders will focus on data collection, the generation and assessment of alternatives, the evaluation and selection of the preferred alternative, the development of mitigation measures to reduce or avoid potential environmental impacts, and to seek overall support for this study. Several advisory groups will be formed to support this study. Many of these groups were involved during Stage 1 of the study, and will continue to be involved during Stage 2:

Community Advisory Group (CAG)

The Community Advisory Group (CAG) includes representation from interest groups, organizations, and individuals in and around the study area. The CAG enables direct communication between the community and the project team, and CAG members are asked to provide comments and suggestions on study findings; provide insight and discussion on potential issues, challenges, and opportunities; and participate in developing strategies to address the issues and opportunities. At the first Community Workshop and at Public Information Centre #1, information on the CAG was provided and stakeholders interested in joining the CAG were encouraged to apply for membership. You may indicate your interest in applying for membership on the CAG by submitting a request through the Contact Us page.
