Have Your Say About Prohibited Animals in Toronto

To protect public safety, animal welfare, minimize nuisance and health risks the City of Toronto has a list of animals that are prohibited, which means that Toronto residents are not allowed to keep prohibited animals. The prohibited animals list can be found at the end of every page of this survey. Certain organizations are exempted from this prohibition and are allowed to keep prohibited animals. These include: Toronto Zoo, Toronto Wildlife Centre, Ripley's Aquarium, accredited veterinary hospitals, and others.

This survey will ask your opinion on:
  • whether any animals should be added or removed from the current prohibited animals list
  • the process to add or remove animals from the prohibited animals list
  • identifying the extent of use and possibility of regulating prohibited animals in educational programming at birthday parties, parades, or other activities.
This survey should take about 15 minutes to complete. Please do not include any personal information in this survey.

Survey responses will be collected until noon on May 5, 2017.
