Noise Bylaw – Public Consultations

30 August 2023


The City of Toronto is reviewing the successes and challenges of implementing the Noise Bylaw, which was amended in 2019. Residents are invited to provide feedback at public consultations, starting Tuesday, September 12.

In Toronto, certain levels of noise are reasonable and reflect life in the densely populated city. The City’s Noise Bylaw balances the city’s vibrancy with the needs of residents and provides time restrictions and sound level limits for various types of noise.

Registration for the following in-person and virtual consultations is available online (opens in new window).

  • General noise (for example, unreasonable and persistent noise, power device noise and noise from waste collection):
    • In-person: Tuesday, September 12, Metro Hall, 55 John St., Room 308/309, 7 to 9 p.m
    • Virtual: Tuesday, September 19, 7 to 9 p.m. Amplified sound (for example, music from bars):
    • Virtual: Wednesday, September 13, 7 to 9 p.m
    • In-person: Thursday, September 21, Metro Hall, 55 John St., Room 308/309, 7 to 9 p.m.
  •  Motor vehicle noise:
    • Virtual: Monday, September 18, 7 to 9 p.m.
  • Construction noise (for example, condo developments and residential infill):
    In-person: Wednesday, September 20, North York Central Library, 5120 Yonge St., Meeting Room 101, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
