Key Progress from 2008 to 2015:
  • Beach closings have declined thanks to a substantial reduction in E. coli loadings to the waterfront. Eight of Toronto’s 11 waterfront beaches are now Blue Flag beaches.
  • Levels of contaminants in fish continue to decline and there are no longer restrictions on consumption for many resident fish.
  • Creation and restoration of habitats along streams and the waterfront have increased diversity of fish and wildlife species.
  • Phosphorus levels along the waterfront now meet the target set for the RAP, however, continued work on critical wet weather flow infrastructure projects is needed.
  • The aesthetics of watercourses and the waterfront in the Toronto RAP area are primarily considered excellent or good.
