Invitation to Community Engagement Webinar #2 about the GTA West Highway and
Transit Corridor Environmental Assessment Study

The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is in Stage 2 of the GTA West Transportation
Corridor Route Planning and Environmental Assessment (EA) Study. After confirming the
Preferred Route and 2020 Focused Analysis Area on August 7, 2020 (please refer to the
enclosed key plan or view mapping at, the GTA West Project Team
commenced developing the Preferred Route to a preliminary design level of detail.
The GTA West Study is being undertaken as an Individual EA in accordance with the Ontario
EA Act and the GTA West Corridor EA Terms of Reference, which was approved by the Ontario
Minister of the Environment on March 4, 2008. On May 3, 2021, the Federal Minister of
Environment and Climate Change designated the GTA West Study under the Federal Impact
Assessment Act.

To further meet the public’s needs and address community questions, the GTA West Project
Team hosted a Community Engagement Webinar in July 2021. We are hosting a second
Community Engagement Webinar on September 29, 2021 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The
GTA West Project Team will provide the same overview of the project as was presented
in July, followed by a question & answer period. Expert panelists from a variety of
disciplines (e.g. noise, air quality, fisheries, archaeology, etc.) will be in attendance to answer
your questions.

Dundas Bus Rapid Transit

By Events, Resources, Ward 1

Metrolinx is continuing to advance planning for the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor, based on key findings in the Dundas Connects Master Plan and the Metrolinx Initial Business Case. The purpose of the Dundas BRT project is to evaluate the proposed transit corridor along a 48 kilometre (km) stretch of Dundas Street from Highway 6 in the City of Hamilton through to the Kipling Transit Hub in the City of Toronto, linking Etobicoke and Mississauga City Centres. More than 20 km, of the 48 km BRT, will operate in bus lanes or in a dedicated right-of-way, separate from other traffic, allowing faster and more reliable transit connections.


Please join us on September 22, 2021 at 6:30pm for a presentation and question-and-answer session about the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project. The panel will include experts from our project team. Live captioning will be provided.
