Community Connector Program

The City of Hamilton launched the LRT “Community Connectors” Program, in partnership with Metrolinx, in May 2016.The Community Connector team, made up of a diverse group individuals from across our city, is committed to visiting every affected property (nearly 1,400) along the corridor twice per year for the duration of the project. Their role is to inform, educate and engage property owners and also gather feedback that will help inform the LRT plans.

LRT Citizens' Jury

A group of citizens that reflect the diversity of our community were recruited for a Citizens’ Jury. Using input from stakeholders like the public, the Jury provided advice to Hamilton City Council. They considered the challenges and opportunities that might arise from the implementation of LRT and will provide input into decision-making as higher order transit is implemented in Hamilton. This information was captured and shared with Council.
