Proclamation:

WHEREAS urban agriculture helps to achieve City of Toronto priorities such as promoting strong neighbourhoods, mitigating climate change and increasing access to healthy, local produce.

Toronto consistently ranks as one of the most livable, sustainable and resilient cities in North America and our policies work to enhance water and air quality, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and establish vibrant green spaces across Toronto.

Green spaces provide a variety of ecological functions that are important to the health of individuals and communities, and have impacts across the city and beyond its borders.

NOW THEREFORE, I, Mayor John Tory, on behalf of Toronto City Council, do hereby proclaim September 15, 2017 as “Urban Agriculture Day” in the city of Toronto.
