Province of Toronto Party

The Province of Toronto Party (at provinceoftoronto.ca) advocates forming a Province of Toronto with the same boundaries as the present amalgamated City of Toronto. It is a registered provincial political party in Ontario which it seeks to withdraw from.

Some supporters have suggested forming a Province of Toronto Green Party along the lines of the American DC Statehood Green Party which has a similar goal.

Jane Jacobs is an active and vocal supporter of this move although she may not hold an official membership.

Current Mayor of Toronto David Miller has also stood strongly for achieving these powers for his city, and made preparatory moves such as withdrawing Toronto from the Association of Municipalities of Ontario.
