October 26th 2016 is THE critical date for the Expo 2025 Canada initiative. The Expo 2025 Feasibility Study and an accompanying City Staff Report will be presented to the City’s Executive Committee who will then vote on whether or not to proceed with a formal bid, and seek to engage the federal and provincial governments. The result of this October 26th Executive Committee vote will largely determine how Toronto City Council will vote when it comes to a final vote by council on November 8th.
We are closer than ever to bringing Expo 2025 to Toronto, but we need YOUR participation now, more than ever. It is vitally important that we show up in big numbers to show Council that we are committed to bringing Expo 2025 to Canada. We need you to join us in person October 26th after 1pm, at Toronto City Hall.

It is critical that we have deputations come from all sectors of the economy, all areas of the city, and from all walks of life, so as to signal strong community-based support for Toronto moving forward with a request to the federal government.
