Following several years of consultation with stakeholders, on October 1, 2019 the City of Toronto launched an updated Noise By-Law. It is the first major revision to this By-law in many decades (Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 591, Noise).

The new By-law dramatically changes the landscape for noise issues in Toronto. For decades there was a core qualitative and subjective element that was the predominant feature in the old By-law, but now this has been replaced with an overreaching quantitative and objective component. According to City officials the new By-law, “Brings clarity and consistency to the process.”
