Federation of North Toronto Residents’ Associations


About FoNTRA

Founded in February 2001 with 21 residents’ associations as members, the Federation of North Toronto Residents’ Associations Incorporated (FoNTRA) is a not for profit organization now comprised of over 30 residents’ associations, which collectively include more than 175,000 Toronto residents within their boundaries. We believe that Toronto and Ontario can and should achieve better development. Its central issue is not whether Toronto will grow, but how. FoNTRA believes that sustainable urban regions are characterized by environmental balance, fiscal viability, infrastructure investment and social renewal.

The Federation of North Toronto Residents Associations Inc. is an association of member residents organizations, which are located in the City of Toronto generally between Bloor Street and Sheppard Avenue, and between the Don Valley Parkway and Bathurst Street. FoNTRA was incorporated on December 6, 2017.

FoNTRA’s mandate includes:

(1)  monitoring, investigating and working towards resolution of urban planning related issues and concerns raised by member residents associations;

(2) sharing best practices regarding urban planning;

(3) representing the common interests of member organizations before public and private bodies and working constructively with all levels of government in addressing the issues and concerns; and any such complementary purposes as are consistent with these objectives.


FoNTRA Steering Committee meets every second Tuesday (except August).  

FoNTRA General member meeting is every third Tuesday (except December, July and August if agreed) from 7 to 9 pm .
