Committee objectives

The Infrastructure, Land Use & Transportation committee aims to improve physical and digital infrastructure to keep pace with the Toronto Region’s tremendous growth. This member committee is tied to the Board's competitive Region area of focus.

Together, these members advise, guide and shape the Board’s efforts to champion: 

  • Ease of traveling across the Region by transit, especially across municipal boundaries 
  • Developing infrastructure using proven technologies that facilitate local and cross-regional travel to reduce congestion, improve the movement of goods and people, and bolster economic growth and productivity
  • Making transit accessible to all residents and improve access to talent for employers and jobs for workers
  • Meeting infrastructure needs of growing regional population

How we'll get there

To reach our objectives, we work to:

  • Developing actionable proposals that will help build and integrated and globally competitive transit system for the Toronto Region. 
  • Strengthen the resilience of the Region’s supply chains
  • Implement policies and infrastructure needed to support efficient growth of ecommerce deliveries 
  • Enhance the Region’s freight rail infrastructure 
  • Propose a framework to categorize different types of employment lands
