How to Register with the City of Toronto

Register with the City Clerk’s Office

To receive Statutory Notices and other official Notices distributed by the City Clerk’s Office, send your group’s information and a request to be added to the email list. Your group will then be added to the database used by the City Clerk’s Office and Planning. Here is a list of the information that is included in the database:

  • Organization name
  • Organization contact person
  • Organization mailing address
  • Organization email address
  • What ward(s) they are interested in receiving information about

Send your updated information to the Registrar Secretariat’s email address at registrarcco @

Note: Once you are registered with the City Clerk’s Office, if your organization’s information should change (i.e.: contact person, email address, etc.) be sure to email the City Clerk’s Office with updates.

It’s a wise practice to re-register once a year to ensure that your organization’s information is up-to-date … perhaps after your Annual General Meeting.

Register with City Planning for specific site applications

If your association is interested in an Application for a specific site which is under review by City Planning, send an email to the Planner assigned to the file requesting that you/your organization be placed on the communications list for that site.

Search by the specific site address to locate the file for the application in the Application Information Centre (AIC). The Planner’s contact information will be displayed in the search box and at the bottom of the Application Details screen.
