Urban Hens Pilot

Toronto may soon allow chickens to be kept by residents allowing collection of eggs in your own back yard. But will this move create more helpful food options, or a possible nuisance to neighbours? A pilot program has been underway in select parts of the City to identify possible issues that might arise from chicken coops or improper care of animals. With the pilot coming to an end, City staff are collecting thoughts and feedback from the public before a recommendation on the future of the program comes forward in March. Residents with thoughts on the issue can participate in a public survey prior to February 11, 2022.
