You can help shape the future of Toronto's music scene

Toronto's been talking about this idea of becoming a "music city" for quite a while already. But now, city hall wants to hear from all of us at it begins to pen its formal music strategy.

The Toronto Music Advisory Council, in conjunction with the City of Toronto, is inviting all Torontonians to take a quick survey regarding our existing (and potential) music scene.

"As City Hall works to help build Toronto's music sector, we need you to tell us where we should focus our efforts," said Mayor John Tory in a news release.

"Our residents deserve a vibrant music scene, which can help make Toronto attractive to visitors and drive economic growth, job creation and investment in our city."

The survey touches on many pain points, such as the bylaws surrounding the music industry that tend to hamper venues from opening or functioning at full capacity, something which virtually killed the burgeoning live scene on Geary Avenue. And it also asks after our city's status as a "music destination."

The city is getting ready to create its music strategy, of which you can read an early draft right here.
