The Province of Ontario released Amendment 1 to A Place to Grow: Growth Plan for the GGH that includes changes to the total population and employment forecasts for Peel, the planning horizon (from 2041 to 2051), and other policies. Future updates to reflect this amendment will build on work completed under Peel 2051 thus far to support the Region’s vision for A Community for Life. For more information, see provincial drivers.
What is the Regional Official Plan Review?
In keeping with the Government of Ontario’s Planning Act, the Region must update its Official Plan every 5 years. This mandatory update ensures that official plan policies stay current with Provincial plan and policy changes and reflect our changing community's needs.
Peel 2051 is our current Regional Official Plan review. It started on May 23, 2013 with a public meeting. The Regional Official Plan Review process will:
- Incorporate new provincial legislation, regulations and policies.
- Implement new regional policy initiatives and plans.
- Have a meaningful community engagement process.
- Guide growth and development within the Region to the year 2051.
To date, Regional Official Plan Amendment 27, on Age-friendly Planning, Health and the Built Environment, as adopted by By-Law 12-2017, was approved by the Province and went into effect on September 1, 2017. Read more about approved amendments.

What is the Municipal Comprehensive Review?
A Municipal Comprehensive Review (MCR) is a process required under the 2019 A Place to Grow Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe and Provincial Policy Statement. It ensures that Official Plans conform with provincial plans and policies. An MCR results in a new official plan or official plan amendment which is submitted to the Province for approval.
