About the By-Law 569-2013
The City of Toronto presented a new by-law that is effectively removing all zoning for places of worship, faith-based private schools and only allowing permits in very expensive commercial zones. A significant number of places of worship are in light industrial zones for two primary reasons; availability and affordability.
